NEW YORK CITY -- (WPIX) -- Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer is being investigated in connection to an alleged assault at a midtown hotel, police say.
Police say the alleged incident happened Saturday night at the Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue just south of Central Park. The victim had told police that she was attacked by the disgraced former governor.
Sources tell PIX11 the two had known each other for a while.
PIX11 has reached out to the Plaza Hotel for comment but has not heard back at this time.
A spokeswoman for Spitzer released a statement Sunday saying "there is no truth to the allegation."
