Cleveland Browns wide receiver Corey Coleman was identified in court documents linked to an alleged assault on New Year's Eve in Cleveland. 

According to Cleveland.com's Adam Ferrise, an indictment listed Coleman as one of three men who participated in the assault. However, Coleman has yet to be charged with a crime.

A grand jury indicted Coleman's brother, Jonathan, and another man, Jared Floyd, each on a charge of felonious assault.

The victim, Adam Sapp, was unable to identify any of his alleged attackers because his back was turned to them. According to police reports and surveillance footage, Corey and Jonathan Coleman and Floyd allegedly followed Sapp after an argument outside an elevator at Pinnacle Condominiums.

The Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich reported the original police report stated a female eyewitness, Nina Holman, had identified Corey Coleman as one of the assailants.

Kathleen Caffrey, a spokeswoman for the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office, told Ulrich that an investigation into the incident remains ongoing.
