Dortmund, Germany • German authorities have begun a sexual assault investigation against Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic.

The state prosecutor's office in Dortmund says Subotic and three others are under investigation after a 21-year-old woman filed a complaint saying she was the victim of sexual assault following a private party at the Serbian's residence.

Subotic recently returned from two months out because of facial fractures. He won the Bundesliga title with Dortmund last season.

Subotic spent part of his youth growing up in Salt Lake City and played for the U.S. Under-17 and Under-20 teams. But after coach Thomas Rongen left him off the roster for the 2007 Under-20 World Cup, he switched allegiance to Serbia, part of the Yugoslav nation when he was born in Banja Luka in 1988.
