Harvey Weinstein dons disguise for night out

Actress Paz de la Huerta tells CBS News that in October 2010, Weinstein offered to give her a ride home to her New York City apartment after a party, because the two lived in the same neighborhood.

The Manhattan district attorney has also assigned a senior sex crimes prosecutor to the case, working in collaboration with NY police, his office confirmed.

De la Huerta said she told two people about the incident before now, including her therapist and a journalist, and both of them have provided statements corroborating the actresses's account of the night, as per her description of it to them. She told the publication that Weinstein then started to kiss her, and after she tried to brush him away, he pushed her onto the bed, with his trousers down, and lifted up her skirt.

Later that same month, Weinstein showed up uninvited in the lobby of her apartment building.

Vance's office declined to bring criminal charges against Weinstein in 2015, after Weinstein admitted in a recorded conversation he groped model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez.

The actress's claims are very similar to ones shared by many among the more than 60 women who have come forward accusing Weinstein of assault, harassment, or rape.

Polanski left the United States for France in 1977 after he was charged with raping a 13-year-old girl.

Robert Boyce said the alleged victim "put forth a credible and detailed narrative".

"We have an actual case here, so we are happy with where the investigation is right now".

"He hushed me and said, 'Let's talk about this in your apartment, '" de la Huerta said. The actress said she'd been drinking at the time and was scared of Weinstein. "Things got very uncomfortable very fast", De la Huerta told the magazine before alleging that Weinstein forced himself on her.

"We are aware of the sexual assault complaints".
