A grand jury will convene later this week to determine if charges will be filed against Albert Haynesworth in regards to a waitress's claims earlier this week that he sexually abused her, NBC Washington has learned.

Subpoenas have been issued to some employees at the W Hotel in Washington who may have witnessed the alleged incident.

According to a police report obtained by NBC Washington, the waitress stated that her hands were full carrying glasses as she was clearing the table at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

She said that "Subject 1" tried to pay his bill by giving her his credit card, but he asked if it was OK to stick the card in her blouse near her breast area. She nodded her head yes and, according to the report, she said he then placed the card into her blouse gently, sliding the card further into her left side of the blouse and then started to caress her breast.

Haynesworth's name is not mentioned in the report, which was filed at 5:15 a.m. Sunday, but sources say that "Subject 1" is indeed referring to Haynesworth.

Just because a grand jury will convene, it does not mean charges actually will be filed.

The Redskins are referring all calls to Haynesworth's agent.

Haynesworth's agent, Chad Speck, provided the following statement to NBC Washington's Dan Hellie earlier this week after the initial claims were made:

"There seems to be no truth to these allegations. We are currently evaluating facts and considering our own legal action against those involved."
