Scottsdale police are investigating an allegation of sexual assault involving Phoenix Suns player Michael Beasley.

Scottsdale Police say the alleged incident took place on January 13, 2013.

Officer David Pubins says, "At this point we can only say the investigation is ongoing as we are interviewing those involved and are processing any physical evidence that we may have to try to determine if criminal charges are appropriate for this incident."

Team officials did not immediately return phone messages seeking comment Tuesday. It wasn't clear if Beasley had legal representation.

Beasley was Phoenix's biggest offseason acquisition in 2012 after signing a 3-year, $18 million contract. He was the No. 2 overall pick of the 2008 draft.

Beasley has been in trouble before. He was cited earlier this year on suspicion of speeding, driving on a suspended license and driving without a license plate or registration.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
