'We have enough to arrest Harvey Weinstein'

The New York City Police Department said on Friday that it had a credible narrative from an unidentified person who has made a rape allegation against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and was gathering evidence for a possible arrest warrant.

"He pushed me on the bed", she said, "and it happened all very suddenly".

"He's like a pig", de la Huerta told the magazine. "Then he pushed me onto the bed and his trousers were down and he lifted up my skirt".

I felt afraid.... It wasn't consensual ...

Boyce said detectives found the "Boardwalk Empire" actress' story believable and corroborated portions of her account.

Almost two months later, de la Huerta said Weinstein showed up in the lobby of her apartment one night.

"I believe based on my interviews with Paz that from the NYPD standpoint we have enough to make an arrest", Detective Nicholas DiGaudio told Vanity Fair.

The NYPD is investigating a third sexual assault allegation against Harvey Weinstein - this time from an actress who accuses the fallen movie mogul of raping her in 2010, authorities said. "He raped me." She says she never heard from Weinstein again after that night. We are actively investigating them.

De la Huerta and Weinstein met at a party in October, 2010, and they shared a ride home to the same neighbourhood, she told CBS News.

"I'm not going to close the door and say others won't come forward but this is what we have right now".

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance has assigned a senior sex crimes prosecutor to the case, spokeswoman Joan Vollero said.

The investigation comes a month after The New York Times published an expose of sexual harassment allegations against Weinstein, leading to his firing from the company he co-founded and his expulsion from the organization that bestows the Academy Awards.

Weinstein has not commented on the latest allegations, but has repeatedly denied accusations of non-consensual sex.
