HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles Lakers are investigating allegations that two of their players sexually harassed two women in Hollywood Sunday evening, according to ESPN.

ESPN reports that the two players were guards Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson.

One of the alleged victims was Alexis Jones, an author and co-founder of the nonprofit I AM THAT GIRL.

In a post to her Instagram page on Sunday, Jones said four men pulled up at a red light and started yelling and making vulgar gestures at her and her mother.

Jones said the incident happened at Melrose and La Brea avenues.
