She told the publication that Weinstein then started to kiss her, and after she tried to brush him away, he pushed her onto the bed, with his trousers down, and lifted up her skirt.

De la Huerta said the second assault happened just more than a month later, in December. De la Huerta claims that the former studio head forcibly raped her on two separate occasions, each of which fall under New York State's statute of limitations for rape in the first degree. That's when she alleges Weinstein took off her dress and forced himself on her. "He kept humping me and it was disgusting".

Police in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and London have also said they are investigating sexual assault allegations against Weinstein but no charges have been brought against him.

Weinstein's representative did not respond to CNN's request for comment regarding de La Huerta's allegations on Friday. De la Huerta and her attorney have since been working with detectives from the NYPD's special victim's unit and the district attorney's office, she said. He's like a pig. She said she reluctantly let him upstairs and he raped her again. We're told he asked for a private room. problem was, the room was all glass so people in the restaurant could see him. She said she shared what happened with her best friend and her therapist.

NY police are gathering evidence with an eye toward preparing a warrant to arrest Harvey Weinstein on rape charges.

Is there enough evidence for prosecutors to file charges against Weinstein?

"I believe based on my interviews with Paz that from the N.Y.P.D. standpoint we have enough to make an arrest", DiGaudio told Vanity Fair. "The department has reason to assemble its case with particular care".

The disgraced movie producer, 65, showed up at her building after repeatedly calling her, according to the publication.

In Los Angeles, Officer Drake Madison, spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department, told USA TODAY the department now has two open investigations on Weinstein.

Weinstein's representative, Sallie Hofmeister, says the 65-year-old Oscar victor denies any allegations of non-consensual sex.
