NY police say they're building a rape case against Harvey Weinstein

The New York City Police Dept. says it has a "credible and detailed" allegation of rape against Harvey Weinstein, and is continuing to gather evidence for a possible arrest.

The Boardwalk Empire actress claimed Harvey Weinstein raped her twice in her own home back in October 2010.

The factors that made her story credible included: "The ability to articulate each and every minute of the crime, where she was, where they met, where this happened and what he did", he said.

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

Then two months later, Weinstein showed up at her building and they went upstairs before he attacked her again, according to the actress.

The NYPD previously confirmed one active Weinstein investigation regarding actress Lucia Evans, who accused the disgraced mogul of forcing her into oral sex in 2004.




The first instance, de la Huerta said, was in November of that year.

The 65-year-old was seen in a pretty ineffective disguise at a Chestnut restaurant in Phoenix on Thursday night, where he could be seen wearing a blonde wig, orange make-up and a baseball cap. "The investigation is on-going". She says she had been drinking and was in no state to have consensual sex.

A spokeswoman for Weinstein did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday about de la Huerta's allegations or Boyce's comments.

"The office has been working with our partners in the NYPD since the new allegations came to light", Vollero said.

In a statement his representative said: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein".

On another front, a New York City AIDS charity, amfAR, confirmed on Friday a report that it has received a subpoena from federal prosecutors investigating Weinstein's involvement in 2015 fundraising event.
