NY police reopens 2004 Weinstein assault case

Posted October 13, 2017

NYPD investigators plan to take another look at sex crime allegations against Hollywood heavyweight Harvey Weinstein, who's been accused of rape and sexual assault by a growing number of women, law-enforcement sources said.

She said: "I was so hesitant about speaking out.I didn't want to hurt his family".

The New York Times publishes a story detailing decades of allegations of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein.

The organisation have "informed" the disgraced producer - who was sacked from his own Weinstein Company earlier this week in the wake of a New York Times expose, which claimed he had sexually harassed a number of women over a 30-year period and paid off at least eight to keep their allegations quiet - of their decision and admitted they felt his alleged actions were "completely unacceptable and incompatible" with their own values.

"Some of which ended up with him screaming at me calling me a c** em *Spectre, said she had to fight Weinstein off".

Masse said she remained calm as he led her to a couch and sat down on a couch across from her and went ahead with standard interview questions.

"Since then I felt very bad that I did the movie". About a week later she was told by a Weinstein assistant she didn't get the job because she was an actor.

On Wednesday, model and actress Cara Delevingne posted on Instagram that Weinstein, during a meeting, asked her to kiss another woman and then attempted to kiss her as she tried to leave. "And, you know, like so many people who've come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past". And I got the part although I didn't give him what he wanted, but I didn't say anything.

Rose McGowan, another accuser, called for the board of the Weinstein Company to be dissolved following the allegations against its co-founder.

"In case you didn't realize, it has been a huge week for women", the "Full Frontal" host said at the top of the show. Before getting into the vehicle, Weinstein says, "You know what, we all make mistakes".

Weinstein, 65, has denied all charges, according to a statement from his spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister.

"Guys, I'm not doing OK, but I'm trying", Weinstein told reporters on Wednesday as he entered an SUV parked outside his daughter's Los Angeles home. Police had her make a secret recording, in which Weinstein could be heard repeatedly insisting that she come into his room, which she refused to do.

A law enforcement official says detectives also plan to contact women who spoke about their encounters with Weinstein in a New Yorker article this week. Pierre Lescure, president of the Cannes Film Festival, said in a statement: "These actions point to a pattern of behavior that merits only the clearest and most unequivocal condemnation".

Authorities in NY and London are looking into possible criminal sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
