Police said Thursday that 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette are linked to a police investigation involving a woman who woke up in the hospital after hanging out with the players.

The incident involved a woman with whom Kaepernick reportedly had a previous sexual relationship with and happened at Lockett’s Miami apartment on April 1, according to a four-page police report.

No arrests have been made nor charges filed against the players, Miami Police spokesman Rene Pimental said Thursday.

“There’s no evidence of a crime or a sexual assault,” Pimental said. “This report is simply an incident report taken at the woman’s request.”

The incident was initially reported online by TMZ as a sexual assault, but Pimental said the celebrity gossip news site “took the report out of context.”

Team officials have not released any information about the report.

“The 49ers organization is aware of a report regarding Colin Kaepernick and are gathering facts,” 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement.

Kaepernick was scheduled to attend teammate Anquan Boldin’s “Q-Fest” charity function in Palm Beach Gardens that runs Thursday through Saturday.

Coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters at the Q-Fest event that he hasn’t spoken to Kaepernick since details of the alleged incident surfaced earlier Thursday. “I’m aware (of the incident), but don’t have anything else that I know anything about,” Harbaugh told ESPNWestPalm.com.

Kaepernick’s agent, Scott Smith, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

The woman, whose name was removed from the report, told detectives she went to Lockett’s Brickell Avenue apartment to mingle with Kaepernick and Patton and that she “mixed some drinks for them and gave them shots.”

The players allegedly told her that, in order to drink with them, she needed to smoke marijuana.

The woman said the group then watched a basketball game, and shortly after she started to feel lightheaded so she went to a bedroom to rest. She says Kaepernick, with whom she has had a previous sexual relationship, came to the room and kissed her and undressed her, the report continues. She told police they did not have sex.

Kaepernick then reportedly left her naked in the bedroom. Shortly after Patton and Lockette opened the door and peeked inside, the report states. She said she asked “What are you doing? Where is Colin? Get out!” The men then left.

The woman told detectives she woke up later in a hospital not knowing how she arrived there.

The report did not detail why she was in the hospital.

Patton, 23, and Lockette, 27, shared a house with Kaepernick before getting cut from the 49ers in last year’s training camp.

Patton, whose 2013 rookie season hindered by hand and foot injuries, has been working out with 26-year-old Kaepernick this offseason.
