According to senior LAPD sources and court documents, the victim told detectives she'd gone out drinking with friends and blacked-out after sharing a beer with Adelman while watching an outdoor concert.
The victim said when she woke up she was being attacked by Adelman on his bed.
She told police the attack lasted several hours, and Adelman eventually drove her back to her car.
A command-level source at LAPD confirms the investigation is ongoing, but no charges have been filed and Adelman has not been arrested.

UPDATE - 6:15 p.m. - Adelman has been placed on administrative leave, according to the L.A. Mayor's office.
Detectives are investigating allegations by a woman who says Andrew Adelman raped her last month at his downtown condominium, according to court documents obtained Tuesday. The investigation is continuing, and Adelman has neither been arrested nor charged with a crime. Adelman's attorney, Mark Geragos, stressed that the accusations have not been proved.
"It's unfortunate that ... an investigation has been made public before any determination of the validity of the allegations have been made," he told The Times.(Geragos ?? Holy S...!! for Adelman)
......And this from Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
In a letter to Adelman, the mayor said: "You are being placed on administrative leave effective immediately. Please be reminded that your employment is at will and may be terminated at any time."
