Los Angeles DA reviewing sexual assault case against Sylvester Stallone

15 June 2018

A sexual assault case involving Sylvester Stallone is now being reviewed by the Los Angeles District Attorney, Us Weekly can confirm.

Los Angeles District Attorney's office spokesman Greg Risling did not give details but said the case was presented by police in the California beach city of Santa Monica. They also provided no timetable for the review. Risling would not comment further on the nature of the allegation.

The alleged incident occurred in the 1990s, but was reported to Santa Monica police in November, which the Hollywood Reporter covered at the time.

The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office is reviewing sexual assault allegations against Sylvester Stallone, according to a DA spokesperson.
