Philadelphia Eagles' Nelson Agholor catches a pass during practice at the team's NFL football training facility in Philadelphia, Tuesday, June 7, 2016.

(Philadelphia) -- Police are investing an allegation that a member of the Philadelphia Eagles sexually assaulted a dancer at a strip club. Authorities would not identify the individual, but the team said wide receiver Nelson Agholor was under police investigation.

Police say the alleged assault occurred Thursday, the day the Eagles wrapped up their offseason workouts.

Attorney Fortunato Perri Jr., who is representing Agholor, says ``Nelson has not been involved in any criminal conduct whatsoever.'' He would not discuss the allegations against him.

The Eagles say they are aware Agholor is under police investigation and they have been in contact with him and the authorities. But they are declining further comment.

The 23-year-old Agholor played at Southern California and was a 2015 first-round draft pick for the Eagles.
