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

04 November 2017

The New York Police Department have now claimed they have enough evidence against Weinstein to arrest him, after actress Paz de la Huerta filed a police report alleging she was raped by Weinstein back in 2010 on two occasions. "And we have to move forward gathering evidence first".

"I was so terrified of him", de la Huerta told Vanity Fair.

De la Huerta, 33, told the magazine the first alleged rape happened in November 2010. De la Huerta said she told two people about the incident before now, including her therapist and a journalist, and both of them have provided statements corroborating the actresses's account of the night, as per her description of it to them.

According to the committee, the equivalent of only $1 was spent on the ad, generating 71 impressions and 14 interactions. Among those targeted with the ad were those who liked Gun Rights, National Rifle Association and The Second Amendment.

The actress' attorney provided material to New York District Attorney Maxine B. Rosenthal, who is considering filing charges against the movie mogul. "We are actively investigating them", Sergeant Brendan Ryan, an NYPD spokesman said Thursday. Either way, they need collaboration from Manhattan prosecutors, who put the brakes on a 2015 investigation into Weinstein.

Police in Los Angeles and London are also investigating rape allegations against Weinstein.

Weinstein's spokeswoman told Vanity Fair that the film producer "unequivocally denied" all allegations of nonconsensual sex.
