Detective Nicholas DiGaudio, who is leading the Weinstein investigation in New York, told Vanity Fair: "I believe, based on my interviews with Paz, that from the New York Police Department standpoint we have enough to make an arrest".

The NYPD is investigating a third sexual assault allegation against Harvey Weinstein - this time from an actress who accuses the fallen movie mogul of raping her in 2010, authorities said.

At the time of the first alleged rape, De la Huerta, 26 at the time, had recently started in her recurring role in HBO's "Boardwalk Empire", which was earning her a lot of praise.

"We have an actual case going forward", Chief of Detectives Robert K. Boyce said. "No doubt", he said, according to AP. "But we're talking about a 7-year-old case". We then sought to garner corroboration - this happened seven years ago - and we found corroboration. "Things got very uncomfortable very fast", De la Huerta told the magazine before alleging that Weinstein forced himself on her.

Her allegations come after more than 50 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and abuse. The "Walk To Remember" actress was 26 when she met Weinstein at a hotel in NY and he later demanded to go back to her apartment. We are actively investigating them.

Weinstein's spokeswoman told Vanity Fair that the film producer "unequivocally denied" all allegations of nonconsensual sex.

Harvey Weinstein showed up in a not-so-effective disguise at a Phoenix restaurant Thursday night, because everyone in the joint made him.

Is there enough evidence for prosecutors to file charges against Weinstein?

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

After the recent flood of allegations against Weinstein brought new scrutiny of that decision, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance's top assistant prosecutor said that police had arranged the 2015 sting without prosecutors' knowledge and that there were other "proof issues".
