NYPD opens third sexual assault allegation against Harvey Weinstein

More than 60 women have come forward with similar allegations against the film producer over the last month. She was 26 at the time.

NY police are gathering evidence with an eye toward preparing a warrant to arrest Harvey Weinstein on rape charges.

New York City Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce has said that a 2010 rape allegation against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein is "credible".

"If this person was still in NY, and it was recent, we'd go right away and make the arrest".

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance has assigned a senior sex crimes prosecutor to the case, spokeswoman Joan Vollero said.

Following the alleged assaults, de la Huerta says she entered a very dark period, drinking to excess and slipping into depression.

The Boardwalk Empire made the revelations in an interview with Vanity Fair.

Officers have received 11 separate allegations of sexual assault on dates ranging from the 1980s to 2015, both in London and outside the United Kingdom.

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".

NY abandoned it's five-year statute of limitations for rape in 2006, meaning Weinstein could be prosecuted.

Officers said they had received "multiple complaints" about Weinstein, adding to investigations in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in the US. The NYPD continues to work with the Manhattan District Attorney's office on the case.

Chairman of the amfAR board, fashion designer Kenneth Cole, told the Times the charity had gotten a subpoena in October. "Mr Weinstein is out of state". She also issued a statement: "We are aware of the investigation. In light of the ongoing investigation, we are not able to provide further comment".

An email message sent to Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister was not immediately returned.
