NYPD gathering evidence to arrest Harvey Weinstein

"We have an actual case going forward", NYPD chief of detectives Robert K. Boyce said, according to The New York Times. De la Huerta says Weinstein started by trying to kiss her, but when she brushed him away, "He pushed me onto the bed and his trousers were down and he lifted up my skirt".

Boyce said detectives found the "Boardwalk Empire" actress' story believable and that two people corroborated portions of her account. "If this person was still in NY and it was recent we would go right away and make the arrest, no doubt".

But he said that since Weinstein is in another state and the allegations are years old, investigators have to gather evidence first.

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.

De la Huerta told the news outlet that Weinstein began calling her after the incident and that she confronted him a month later at a Los Angeles hotel. The actress said she'd been drinking at the time and was scared of Weinstein.

Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein donned a wig, baseball cap and orange make-up in an effort to go incognito for a meal out in Phoenix, Arizona on Thursday night.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie are among the actresses to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment, while Rose McGowan said he raped her.

Boyce said police in NY are working on the Weinstein case along with prosecutors, collecting evidence and putting out subpoenas as they proceed. We are actively investigating them.

"The office has been working with our partners in the NYPD since the new allegations came to light", Vollero said. Weinstein, 65, has previously denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.

"We are aware of the sexual assault complaints".

On another front, a New York City AIDS charity, amfAR, confirmed on Friday a report that it has received a subpoena from federal prosecutors investigating Weinstein's involvement in 2015 fundraising event.
