NYPD says it is building rape case against Harvey Weinstein

HBO star alleges Harvey Weinstein raped her

The New York Police Department have now claimed they have enough evidence against Weinstein to arrest him, after actress Paz de la Huerta filed a police report alleging she was raped by Weinstein back in 2010 on two occasions.

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

The 33-year-old met the disgraced Oscar victor at a party in October, 2010, and the pair shared a ride home together, she told CBS News.

Speaking to Vanity Fair on Wednesday, de la Huerta described being "terrified" of Weinstein, who she said assaulted her and then left her in a state of shock.

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

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

He faces criminal investigations in New York, Los Angeles and London.

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.

De la Huerta has been locked in a legal battle with Lionsgate over her work in the movie Nurse 3D.

The Times and The Telegraph report the accuser is "Paz de la Huerta, 33, who appeared in the USA television series Boardwalk Empire", and "alleged both attacks took place in her own home about a month apart". "No doubt", he said, according to AP.

"We are aware of the sexual assault complaints".

"We have an actual case here, so we are happy with where the investigation is right now". Vance's office said a senior prosecutor has been assigned but didn't comment further.

Weinstein's spokeswoman told Vanity Fair that the film producer "unequivocally denied" all allegations of nonconsensual sex.
