LAPD Investigating Sexual Assault Allegation Involving Harvey Weinstein

Meryl Streep Condemns 'Disgraceful' Harvey Weinstein News

Weinstein is now under investigation in London and New York City for alleged sexual assault. After she refused and went upstairs, Mr. Weinstein appeared at her door anyway and entered the room. Many have told of being tricked into taking a meeting in Weinstein's hotel rooms or being manipulated into caving to his sexual demands out of fear that he could sabotage their careers.

"He. bullied his way into my hotel room, saying, 'I'm not going to [have sex with] you, I just want to talk, '" the woman told The Times. He then allegedly asked to see her naked several times, then grabbed her by the hair, pulled her into the bathroom and forcibly raped her. "Investigation ongoing", the LAPD tweeted on Thursday, October 19, and also confirmed to Us Weekly.

"My client is grateful to all the courageous women who have already come forward to finally expose Weinstein", said attorney David Ring on Thursday.

The incident is alleged to have occurred in February 2013 at a Beverly Hills hotel.

"Mr Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but he unequivocally denies allegations of non-consensual sex", his spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister said in an emailed statement.

"It was the most demeaning thing ever done to me by far".

She was reportedly living in Italy with her three children at the time of the alleged assault, and later moved to Southern California.

The accusations were brought by a 38-year-old woman who asked not to be identified for privacy reasons, according to the Times. But the allegations came to wider attention through a New York Times article published earlier this month.

Weinstein has since been removed from his company and his wife, Georgina Chapman, has separated from him.
