NYPD, Manhattan DA's Office Investigate New Rape Allegations Against Harvey Weinstein


Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta is the latest female to accuse Harvey Weinstein of rape - and this time there may be enough evidence to arrest him.

The Manhattan district attorney has also assigned a senior sex crimes prosecutor to the case, working in collaboration with NY police, his office confirmed.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, De Le Huerta said that Weinstein insisted on having a drink at her apartment in NY after offering her a ride home from a hotel in October 2010.

The NYPD says the attacks are alleged to have happened in 2010, and add they would need to obtain an arrest warrant, noting Weinstein is out of state.

"He pushed me on the bed... and it happened all very suddenly", she told CBS News over the phone.

On December 23 of the same year, she says Weinstein showed up in the lobby of her apartment building, they went upstairs, and he allegedly raped her a second time.


Investigators in London and California were also looking into allegations made by women, but no other department has suggested allegations could result in criminal charges.

De la Huerta follows dozens of women who have come out against Weinstein alleging sexual harassment or assault.

Polanski left the United States for France in 1977 after he was charged with raping a 13-year-old girl.

Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said investigators have interviewed actress Paz de la Huerta. "The investigation is on-going". "We are actively investigating them", Sergeant Brendan Ryan, an NYPD spokesman said Thursday. Vance's office said a senior prosecutor has been assigned but didn't comment further.

Weinstein, who was ousted from his own company amid the scandal, has repeatedly stated through a spokesman that "allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied".
