This is the second Spacey allegation being investigated by Scotland Yard. The theater said it had advised more than a dozen of the complainants to go to the police with their allegations, but it is not clear whether the new investigation launched by Scotland Yard is a result of that advice.

Police had already begun investigating an alleged assault on a young man that took place in 2008 in the London borough of Lambeth, where Spacey had a residence.

Kevin Spacey was artistic director between 2004 and 2015 at the Old Vic, which is based in Lambeth.

At least 20 allegations of sexual assault have been made against the U.S. star and now the British police is looking into another case against him.

"The allegations are of sexual assaults against a man, victim two, in 2005 in Lambeth".

Spacey has been accused of attempting to rape a 15-year-old boy in NY and of making advances on actor Anthony Rapp when he was 14 years old, 31 years ago.

The seasoned politician was making a remark based on the present Prime Minister's job as a tea vendor in the latter's childhood. The party seems to have forgotten that Modi wears the "chaiwala" tag like a badge of honour, and not an insult.

It opened the investigation following a stream of allegations against the actor, including testimony from Mexican actor Rob Cavazos, who worked with Spacey at the Old Vic. The Old Vic said a "cult of personality" around Spacey had discouraged people from speaking out.

Only one of the alleged victims reported the incidents at the time.

This allegation was brought to the attention of police last Friday.

Netflix suspended the production of House of Cards following the historical harassment allegations against Spacey.

Another man, who did not reveal his name, told the BBC he was left traumatised after waking to find Spacey lying on him, in his underwear, with his arms wrapped around him.
