LAPD Opens Rape Investigation Into Harvey Weinstein

Tyler Durden's picture

Disgraced former Hollywood studio head Harvey Weinstein is hiding out at a $2,000 a night rehab center in Arizona since the New York Times published an expose about the mogul’s history of sexual assault and harassment - a history that has been littered with settlements and NDAs - two weeks ago.

Since then, more than 30 women have come forward to accuse Weinstein of misconduct ranging from harassment to groping to rape, prompting law enforcement agencies on two continents to open sex crime investigations.

And on Thursday, the number of open investigations climbed to four when the Los Angeles Times reported that the LAPD has opened an investigation into Weinstein over an alleged sexual assault that reportedly took place in 2013. The investigation was launched after a two-hour meeting with his accuser earlier Thursday.

An Italian model-actress met with Los Angeles police detectives for more than two hours Thursday morning, providing a detailed account of new allegations that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted her at a hotel in 2013.

 

She is the sixth woman to accuse Weinstein of rape or forcible sex acts. Los Angeles police Capt. Billy Hayes confirmed that the department has launched an investigation into the matter.

 

It is the first case related to Weinstein to be reported in Southern California. New York police already have two active sex crime probes and London’s Metropolitan Police is investigating allegations made by three women.

 

The new allegation could be legally troubling for Weinstein because it falls within the 10-year statute of limitations for the crime that existed at the time of the alleged incident, legal experts say.

The woman, who has not been named, provided a detailed account of the incident to the LA Times.

In the latest case, the 38-year-old woman, who has asked not to be named because she is fearful of retaliation and concerned about protecting her children’s privacy, first contacted police on Tuesday, through her attorney, David Ring. Two detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery-Homicide Division’s rape special section took her statement on Thursday, describing how Weinstein pushed his way into her hotel room, dragged her into the bathroom and allegedly forcibly raped her.

She told the Los Angeles Times that the incident occurred at Mr. C Beverly Hills hotel after she attended the 8th annual Los Angeles, Italia Film, Fashion and Art Fest in February 2013. She had previously met Weinstein once, briefly, in Rome after being introduced by an acquaintance.

 

At that time, he invited her up to his hotel room, but she said she declined. She said they spoke briefly at the film festival, but he didn’t appear to recall meeting her.

 

Later, he showed up “without warning” in the lobby of her hotel. He asked to come up to her room. She said she told him no and offered to meet him downstairs, but soon, he was knocking on her door.

 

“He ... bullied his way into my hotel room, saying, ‘I’m not going to [have sex with] you, I just want to talk,’” the woman told The Times. “Once inside, he asked me questions about myself, but soon became very aggressive and demanding and kept asking to see me naked. He grabbed me by the hair and forced me to do something I did not want to do. He then dragged me to the bathroom and forcibly raped me."

 

She told her attorney she tried to dissuade Weinstein by showing him pictures of her children.

 

After about 45 minutes, Weinstein departed.

 

“When he left, he acted like nothing happened,” the woman said. “I barely knew this man. It was the most demeaning thing ever done to me by far. It sickens me still. … He made me feel like an object, like nothing with all his power."

The unnamed woman's story echoes accounts given by many other women, including actress Asia Argento, who was shared her own account of being assaulted by Weinstein with the New Yorker.

IN addition to the NYPD, LAPD and Scotland Yard, it has also been reported that the FBI is investigating Weinstein and fears he could pull a “Roman Polanski” by fleeing the country to “seek treatment” in Europe.

Head of the investigation, Jerome Lipshitz, will then pass the baton on to Special Prosecutor, Haim Goldberg who will then leave it up to judge, Schmuel Steinowitz to pass sentence.  Justice will surely be served.

What about ALL THE WOMEN who have accused Bill Clinton of the same thing?  I guess they don't count.

All I see is another quiet settlement in the making and with an anonymous woman, it's easier to have the case disappeared.

The 10-year statute of limitations isn't helping victims; it only helps predators. Whoever introduced it must be a criminal.

Weinstein could also flee to that official land of impostors, thieves, murderers, racists, and rapists. http://wp.me/p4OZ4v-3HK

Agreed.  Rhymes with making possession of images illegal.

Not for their stated reason, "we don't want people beating off to crimes" -- rather, if you are in possession of child pornography, the chances are high that there are people who are identifiable in those images or videos.  The intersect between elite and pedophiles is huge.  Thus, if you have this photographic evidence of a crime, chances are high that you have evidence against someone powerful.

They don't like that.  Hence, the only photographic evidence of a crime that's illegal to possess.  "Faces of Death"?  No problem.  Possible incriminating evidence?  No way.  It took me many years to get to this insight (perhaps I'm slow :) ).

Also, not only is it their defense (jail the investigator before the investigator can jail them) -- they've also weaponized it, once computers came along and they could be infected with images.

I'm enjoying the many self righteous actresses complaining about how they let this greaseball do whatever he wanted to them without saying anything at the time, just so they could land a part in a production.

They became complicit in the abuse when they let this guy do (what everyone in Hollywood knew he did, even to the point of joking about it on awards shows) what he did without speaking out, thereby enabling him to victimize even more people (Women, Men?, CHILDREN?).

Weinstein is the fall guy. Hollywood is known for sexuall abuse of women and children for a long long time.
People are getting disgusted with it. I can't watch a Hollywood movie anymore. All actors are abused by the parasitic elites. Nothing glamorous just a huge perverted prostitution ring.
Now they claim they cleaned Hollywood because Weinstein has to go, what a joke. They are all in it. Last not least Weinstein will get a very mild sentence and will keep all his money.
He will go on raping children on a private island of another billionaire. They always will stick together.

Fish Gone Bad's picture

There are various pictures of actress victims posing with Weinstein at parties, all smiles and rainbows.  Kind of a mixed message.  My guess is the guy spent a great deal of time high, and no one ever said "No" to him.  Anyone remember Mike Tyson raping Miss Black Rhode Island (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Tyson)?  It is hard to imagine someone being that predatory unless someone's "filters" are screwed up.

As will any investigation of the Clintons, Comey, Mueller, Soros, etc. ...

Wonder why these people are so fucking arrogant?

They're ABOVE THE LAW, and they know it.

It is not a crime for Jews to abuse goyim. Goyim are not human and shiskas even less so. It is in the Talmud, so it is LAW.

This is why the ADL had to be founded. Goyim need to understand their place.

There is a difference between an acquittal and innocence, just as there is a difference between unproven & guilty.

I am surprised there has not been retaliation of a physical nature. Fat nasty fuck needs the shit beat out of him by a special committee. 

Makes me wonder. 

I know how to hurt an attacker. Thing is, I might get killed doing it, trying to fight a guy that big. But I would try with all my might. If not killed, I might end up in the hospital.

Now my question...

Has he killed anyone?

And has he had help covering up something more disturbing than these reports?

"Women were sacred and looked upon with great honor..."

And Men fought one another to defend that honor.

Sad that these victimized women have no Men in their lives.

I wouldn't get my hopes up. When Weinstein shows up with his team of jew lawyers in front of a jew judge I am sure a sweetheart deal can be arranged. Just like Dershowitz got for Epstein.

Have they asked him to surrender his passport and the keys to his Gulfstream so he can't escape to central criminal HQ in Tel Aviv? Probably not.

Also makes you wonder why the tribe is throwing him to the wolves at this particular point in time as this has been known for years. What are they trying to hide? Who are they trying to protect? Must be serious to sacrifice such a high profile influential jew criminal.

Exactly. Someone has an agenda. It's not like our ruling elite all of a sudden found morality/god/whatever. Not that I give a fuck about WeenieSteenie. Still, if they can set upon each other like this, just a question of pushing the right buttons to get them to go after each other in other ways. No different than the plebes they manipulate.

Perhaps Len will get the Weinstein Company on the cheap?
The rise of billionaire Len Blavatnik, one of Wall Street’s greatest dealmakers

In 2011, AI purchased Warner Music Group for $3.3 billion and acquired Atlantic, Warner Bros. Records, Rhino, and Warner Music Nashville. Blavatnik also picked up Parlophone, a British music label that manages the likes of Coldplay and Two Door Cinema Club, for $742 million.

Blavatnik recently teamed up with Hollywood talent manager Sarah Stennett to launch First Access Entertainment. The company will focus on talent and brand development, representation of recording artists and songwriters, and rights exploitation. Blavatnik owns AI Film, the independent movie and production company that’s behind acclaimed film Lee Daniels’ "The Butler" and "Rocketman," the forthcoming Elton John biopic. During the Cannes Film Festival in France every year, Blavatnik hosts an exclusive luncheon aboard his yacht, The Odessa at Old Port, along with film partner and friend Harvey Weinstein of The Weinstein Company....

Here we go, Len is pulling the rug out from under Harvey

British film financier 'demands return of £34m investment' from Weinstein Company as scandal deepens In addition to the reputational cost, the celebrity news site TMZ reported that AI Industries, which is owned by Britain’s richest man Sir Leonard Blavatnik, is demanding its cash be returned.

“The dismissal of Harvey Weinstein from his position as co-chairman” constitutes a “material adverse change”, according to a demand understood to have been sent to the Weinstein Company, allowing them to demand immediate repayment of the loan.

"and forcibly raped me.

Then I signed a $1.000.000 Motion Picture contract and I never thought of mentioning the rape until now."

shimmy's picture

Pretty much this.

I like how all these women stayed silent until now. Hard to feel sympathy for them when they were content to stay quiet if it meant their careers would benefit or take payoffs.

Blue Boat's picture

Such incredibly simple thinking. How about:

--- there may have been no witnesses (probably weren't) so, good luck for some 20 or 30 yr old female with no clout trying to get anyone to believe her. No, worse than that --- guys like you would have screamed that her claims were phony and she's just trying to exort a rich guy.

--- maybe she had some evidence to provide and did report it. But, it wasn't enough or in hearing of the enormous task involved, and low probablity, to prove assault she decided not to pursue it.

--- many have stated that they did rebuff him and some declared that their career suffered because of it. I suppose you don't believe them either.

--- And how do you report the threatening intimidation? Where's the provable crime?

The guy monetarily settled 8 cases, that we know of. What the fuck does that tell you?  A true moron you are and that's part of the reason this problem doesn't go away-- because of enablers like you. Buzz off.

shovelhead's picture

Not reporting a rape immediately insures it won't go away.

What about all the chicks that came after her because she kept quiet and didn't report it?
