An ongoing criminal case based in Seattle has prompted the FBI to investigate a Las Vegas warehouse owned by famed magician David Copperfield this week, the FBI reported Friday.
But the agency was tight-lipped about details. FOX News, citing anonymous law enforcement sources, reported that a woman in Seattle has accused Copperfield of raping her in the Bahamas, where, according to the illusionist's Web site, he owns several islands.
The television news network said the woman reported the alleged attack after returning to the United States.
Robbie Burroughs, spokeswoman for the Seattle FBI office, had no comment on Copperfield.
"There was investigative activity on Wednesday in Las Vegas," she said. "It is related to a Seattle FBI case. But the case is ongoing, and therefore we can't say anything."
Seattle police also had no comment on the Copperfield case.
