BALTIMORE, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- A 26-year-old woman alleges in a $70 million lawsuit against Terrell Suggs that the Baltimore Ravens linebacker abused her on two occasions.

The Baltimore Sun reported Friday that in addition to the abuse allegations detailed in her Baltimore County Circuit Court lawsuit, Candace Williams filed a separate complaint alleging she is the mother of Suggs's two children.

Williams is seeking custody of the two young children, whose ages and names were not released.

Williams alleges in her suit, which is seeking $20 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages, that Suggs hit her in the face Nov. 3 and threatened to kill her.

The Sun said Suggs is also accused of threatening to drown Williams with bleach on Nov. 29. The second incident, in which Suggs is accused of pouring bleach on Williams, prompted the woman to seek a restraining order against the NFL player.

Suggs, 27, had no comment on the matter.

"I really have nothing to hide. As bad as I want to talk about it right now, I can't," said the defensive standout, who missed the last three Ravens games with an injury.
