The New York police is allegedly gathering evidence for the arrest of Harvey Weinstein. Some police sources said according to the Los Angeles Times that the rape allegations made against Weinstein are credible and they just have to gather all the available evidence against him to issue an arrest warrant.
So, The New York Police Department stated that it received credible evidence from an actress, who accused Weinstein of rapping her twice. The actress, Paz de la Huerta, allegedly told the police that Weinstein sexually abused her in 2010. She revealed what happened to her earlier this month in an interview with Vanity Fair.
The actress claimed that she ran into Weinstein at a hotel bar in Manhattan. Paz said that she and Weinstein first met when she was only 14, while working at the movie Cider House Rules. She said that until meeting at the hotel bar, she had a professional relationship with the producer and at one point Weinstein actually sent her some science-fiction books, saying that she might be ready for a main role in one of his movies. Weinstein offered to give her a ride home and when arriving at her apartment he demanded to come inside for a drink. The actress said that when he got inside, he started to kiss her.
“Immediately when we got inside the house, he started to kiss me and I kind of brushed [him] away,” the star explained. “Then he pushed me onto the bed and his pants were down and he lifted up my skirt. I felt afraid. . . . It wasn’t consensual . . . It happened very quickly. . . . He stuck himself inside me. . . . When he was done he said he’d be calling me. I kind of just laid on the bed in shock,” the star added.
Weinstein kept on calling her, although she asked him to leave her alone. At one point, he just showed up at her apartment. “He hushed me and said, ‘Let’s talk about this in your apartment,'” she said. “I was in no state. I was so terrified of him. . . . I did say no, and when he was on top of me I said, ‘I don’t want to do this.’ He kept humping me and it was disgusting. He’s like a pig. . . . He raped me.”
Dozens of women have accused Weinstein of sexual abuse. Out of these women, 13 have filed sexual assault reports with the police.
