Police searched the home of Canadian boxing champion Jean Pascal in Lorraine, Que., Sunday night in connection with a possible sexual assault.

According to authorities, a 25-year-old woman was taken to hospital at 5:30 a.m. Sunday claiming to be the victim of sexual assault.

Several hours of questioning led investigators to Pascal’s home, Therese-De Blainville police spokesperson Martin Charron said.

A search warrant was obtained Sunday afternoon.

QMI Agency has learned there’s no evidence yet to suggest Pascal is a suspect, but the alleged assault occurred at his home during a party with friends that began Saturday night.

Pascal, who currently holds the NABF light heavyweight and WBC Diamond championships, left Canada prior to the start of the investigation. He’s scheduled to return Tuesday.

His lawyer, Loris Cavaliere, told QMI that Pascal himself is not being investigated.
