New York, London Police Open Criminal Investigations on Harvey Weinstein
Total Response time: 0.11143922805786
The NYPD said in a statement:
Based on information referenced in published news reports the NYPD is conducting a review to determine if there are any additional complaints relating to the Harvey Weinstein matter. No filed complaints have been identified as of this time and as always, the NYPD encourages anyone who may have information pertaining to this matter to call the CrimeStoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS," police told THR in a statement.
The NYPD is actively reviewing past files and asking for any victims to step forward. In 2015, the Manhattan district attorney's office investigation Weinstein after Ambra Battilana Gutierrez claimed sexual harassment. Their sting operation even yielded a damning tape, mentioned in the bombshell New Yorker exposé, but District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. opted not to prosecute.
The Met has been passed an allegation of sexual abuse by Merseyside police on Wednesday 11 October. The allegation will be assessed by officers from the child abuse and sexual offences command."
Weinstein, via his rep, has "unequivocally denied" any allegation of non-consensual sex.
