NYPD finds Weinstein rape allegation 'credible', seeks warrant

The New York Police Department has said that it is gathering evidence as it builds a case against disgraced Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein.

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.

His comment raised the prospect that Weinstein could be arrested if he returns to his native NY from Arizona, where he has been undergoing treatment at a rehabilitation centre. "No doubt", Boyce said. "We're happy with where the case is right now".

Vanity Fair reported on Friday, November 3, de la Huerta's allegations have launched a new NYPD investigation and NYPD officer Nicholas DiGaudio believes they have enough evidence to move forward with an arrest.

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. 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.

He added that de la Huerta, who is best known for HBO's Boardwalk Empire, "put forth a credible and detailed narrative to us" and was able to "articulate each and every movement of the crime: where she was, where they met, where this happened and what he did".

More than 60 women have accused Weinstein of sexual assault or hartassment in recent weeks. The "Walk To Remember" actress was 26 when she met Weinstein at a hotel in NY and he later demanded to go back to her apartment.

As the scandal widens, police in Britain are now investigating an allegation of sexual assault by actor Kevin Spacey. A Weinstein spokesperson has "unequivocally denied" any accusations of non-consensual sex. We are actively investigating them. "The investigation is on-going", the NYPD said in a statement Thursday night.

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

He said the NYPD was working on the case with the Manhattan district attorney's office.
