'We have enough to arrest Harvey Weinstein'

Actress Paz De La Huerta Says Harvey Weinstein Raped Her Twice

"I was so terrified of him", de la Huerta told Vanity Fair. So right now we're gathering our evidence. The actress said she had been drinking, and was frightened by Weinstein, who had been repeatedly calling her, despite her asking him to leave her alone.

De la Huerta, 33, told the magazine the first alleged rape happened in November 2010.

She says Weinstein insisted they have drinks, and they ended up inside her apartment.

The New York Police Department have now claimed they have enough evidence against Weinstein to arrest him, after actress Paz de la Huerta filed a police report alleging she was raped by Weinstein back in 2010 on two occasions.

The force also said it is investigating James Toback, the film-maker who has reportedly been accused of sexual harassment by more than 200 women, including actresses Julianne Moore, Selma Blair and Rachel McAdams.

New York Police Department's (NYPD) chief of detectives said a woman approached them last week, saying the alleged incident took place seven years ago.

I felt afraid.... It wasn't consensual ...

The Manhattan district attorney has also assigned a senior sex crimes prosecutor to the case, working in collaboration with NY police, his office confirmed.

The Boardwalk Empire actress claimed Harvey Weinstein raped her twice in her own home back in October 2010. NY police told CNN they've fielded dozens of calls about Weinstein.

Weinstein's representative, Sallie Hofmeister, says the 65-year-old Oscar victor denies any allegations of non-consensual sex.

Officers said they had received "multiple complaints" about Weinstein, adding to investigations in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in the US.

He faces criminal investigations in New York, Los Angeles and London.

Weinstein's representative did not respond to CNN's request for comment regarding de La Huerta's allegations on Friday.
