BALTIMORE (AP) - The security director for the Baltimore Ravens took the stand at his own trial to deny allegations that he groped a stadium worker after a game.

Darren Sanders testified on Wednesday that he never touched his accuser, a woman who works for a cleaning service contracted with M&T; Bank Stadium. The woman alleges Sanders grabbed her buttocks and breasts without her permission as she escorted him to the elevator after a December game.

Sanders faces second-degree sexual assault and fourth-degree sex offense charges. He testified Wednesday that not only did he never touch the woman, but he rebuffed her advances: Sanders told jurors that she asked for his phone number and he politely declined.

Attorneys will give closing arguments Thursday morning before jurors begin deliberating the case.
