  • Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein at the Elysee Palace Paris France

COPS in NY say they may have case against Harvey Weinstein over Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta's claims the Hollywood mogul raped her.

Detectives say her story is believable and have corroborated parts of her story.

"We have an actual case here, so we are happy with where the investigation is right now". But we're talking about a seven-year-old case.

"He hushed me and said, 'Let's talk about this in your apartment, '" de la Huerta recalled to Vanity Fair after she tried to tell Weinstein to leave her alone. She told the publication that Weinstein then started to kiss her, and after she tried to brush him away, he pushed her onto the bed, with his trousers down, and lifted up her skirt.

De la Huerta said that the second alleged incident occured in December 2010, saying Weinstein turned up at her apartment after she had been drinking and was not in a condition to give consent.

As the scandal widens, police in Britain are now investigating an allegation of sexual assault by actor Kevin Spacey. Weinstein has denied having non-consensual sex with anyone.

The update comes shortly after Beverly Hills authorities became the fourth police department to launch a probe into claims made against the movie mogul. We are actively investigating them.

Countless women have come forward with claims of sexual abuse and harassment against the movie boss following the publication of damning exposes in the New York Times and New Yorker magazine a month ago. Police investigated it as a possible case of forcible touching, a misdemeanor with a two-year time limit for bringing charges under NY law.

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".

He said the NYPD was working on the case with the Manhattan district attorney's office.
