London & NYC Police Launch Investigations into Harvey Weinstein’s Sexual Assault

HeadlineOct 13, 2017

Both the London and New York police departments have launched investigations into disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who was one of the most powerful men in Hollywood until a slew of women came forward in recent days to accuse him of sexual harassment, assault and rape. The London police are investigating allegations of sexual assault dating back to the 1980s. In New York, a 2015 NYPD sting operation already recorded Weinstein admitting to groping Filipina-Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez—but the district attorney, Cyrus Vance, refused to press charges at the time. One of Weinstein’s lawyers donated $10,000 to Vance’s election campaign only days after Vance decided not to prosecute the case.
