Actress Paz de la Huerta claimed disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein raped her twice in 2010, according to a report on Thursday.

"If this person was still in NY, and it was recent, we'd go right away and make the arrest".

"He pushed me on the bed", she said, "and it happened all very suddenly".

Boyce said detectives found the "Boardwalk Empire" actress' story believable and that two people corroborated portions of her account.

"We immediately contacted the district attorney in NY and we started working the case together".

"We don't want another Roman Polanski on our hands", one source said. This happened seven years ago.

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

Boardwalk Empire actor Paz de la Huerta claimed the movie mogul raped her twice at her apartment in NY in 2010.

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 second assault happened just a month later in December she says. The actress said she'd been drinking at the time and was scared of Weinstein.

The actress' attorney provided material to New York District Attorney Maxine B. Rosenthal, who is considering filing charges against the movie mogul. A Weinstein spokesperson has "unequivocally denied" any accusations of non-consensual sex.

New York City investigators could seek an arrest warrant, which requires a court order, or hand the evidence over to prosecutors to put the allegations to a grand jury to seek an indictment.

"We have an actual case here, so we are happy with where the investigation is right now".

Officers have received 11 separate allegations of sexual assault on dates ranging from the 1980s to 2015, both in London and outside the United Kingdom.
