Actress Paz De La Huerta Says Harvey Weinstein Raped Her Twice

The New York City Police Department said Friday that a 2010 rape accusation against Harvey Weinstein is "credible" and the Hollywood mogul would have faced immediate arrest if he were now in the state and the incident was more recent.

New York City police said Friday that an actress' rape allegations against Harvey Weinstein are credible, and if the movie mogul were in the state and the accusation more recent, they would move to arrest him immediately.

De la Huerta says at the time of the alleged second rape, she had been drinking and was in no state to be having consensual sex.

"This is the strongest case we've had that fits within the statute of limitations", the source said, adding some detectives believe they have enough evidence to arrest Weinstein.

"We have an actual case here", Boyce said.

Weinstein allegedly offered a ride home to her apartment where he demanded to come inside and have a drink de la Huerta said.

More than 40M fire extinguishers that may not work recalled
The recall affects between 37 and 38 million extinguishers in the USA made from 1973 to this past September. Owners should contact Kidde to ask for a replacement and for instructions on how to return recalled models.

She described the alleged encounter: "He pushed me onto the bed and his trousers were down and he lifted up my skirt".

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

The disgraced movie producer, 65, showed up at her building after repeatedly calling her, according to the publication. "As this is an active investigation, we will not be commenting further".

Her allegations come after more than 50 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and abuse. Vance's office said the NYPD's investigators did not consult prosecutors in the sex crimes unit before arranging the meeting that led to the recording. Police investigated it as a possible case of forcible touching, a misdemeanor with a two-year time limit for bringing charges under NY law.

The NYPD and Manhattan district attorney's office are both investigating allegations made by the "Boardwalk Empire" actress. "The NYPD continues to work with the Manhattan District Attorney's office on the case".
