Actress Paz de la Huerta alleges Weinstein raped her twice

  • Harvey Weinstein

It is at least the third Weinstein case that police in NY have examined.

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.

The Manhattan district attorney's office has a senior prosecutor assigned to investigate de la Huerta's rape claims, AP reported. With the case being seven years old, though, detectives are moving forward with evidence first.

Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said investigators have interviewed actress Paz de la Huerta.

Her allegations come after more than 50 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and abuse.

Weinstein insisted they have drinks, she said, and they would up in her apartment.


De la Huerta told the news outlet that Weinstein began calling her after the incident and that she confronted him a month later at a Los Angeles hotel.

The latest sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein could result in the first criminal charges against the movie mogul, an NYPD source familiar with the investigation told CNN. "As this is an active investigation, we will not be commenting further".

"We have an actual case here", Boyce said.

In Los Angeles, Officer Drake Madison, spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department, told USA TODAY the department now has two open investigations on Weinstein. "The NYPD continues to work with the Manhattan District Attorney's office on the case".

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.

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. Reportedly $600,000 raised would be given to the American Repertory Theater (A.R.T), a venue that had housed a trial run of the Weinstein-produced Finding Neverland.
