The New York Police Department told BuzzFeed News Thursday it is investigating an allegation that Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted someone in 2004 and is conducting a “review” to determine if there are any “additional complaints” against him.
“A complaint was never filed with the NYPD. The NYPD is investigating an allegation of sex assault from 2004,” an NYPD spokesperson said when asked if the department was investigating any previous allegations against Weinstein.
“Based on information referenced in published news reports the NYPD is conducting a review to determine if there are any additional complaints relating to the Harvey Weinstein matter. No filed complaints have been identified as of this time and as always, the NYPD encourages anyone who may have information pertaining to this matter to call the CrimeStoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
The news was first reported by the New York Daily News, citing anonymous sources.
Meanwhile, LAPD and Beverly Hills PD are not investigating past allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
