Harvey Weinstein Being Investigated By LAPD After Sexual Assault Allegation

The accuser said Weinstein soon “became very aggressive and demanding” before raping her, according to the account she gave the LA Times.
She told the LA Times she reported the incident to a priest, a friend and a nanny, but didn’t tell officials because she was afraid.
When reached Thursday, a spokesperson for Weinstein said, “We deny any allegations of nonconsensual sex although obviously can’t respond to anonymous allegations.”
Weinstein has also previously denied any accusations of sexual assault.
In the past two weeks, more than 40 women have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment or assault since the New York Times first published an article exposing decades of Weinstein’s alleged misdeeds.
After a New Yorker article included multiple allegations of rape, Weinstein’s spokesperson told CNN: “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”

One of the accusers, actress Asia Argento, has previously confirmed her account to CNN.
“This is our truth,” she said.
Weinstein is currently under investigation in London and New York City for alleged sexual assault.
The London investigation is related to an incident that took place in the 1980s, police previously told CNN.
The NYPD is reviewing claims against the film mogul made by women interviewed for the New Yorker article.
CNN’s Brian Stelter, Cheri Mossburg, and Jason Kravarik contributed to this report, as did Simon Cullen and Eliza Mackintosh from London and Brynn Gingras in New York.
