The New York City Police Department said Friday that a 2010 rape accusation against Harvey Weinstein is "credible" and the Hollywood mogul would have faced immediate arrest if he were now in the state and the incident was more recent.

The Manhattan district attorney's office has a senior prosecutor assigned to investigate de la Huerta's rape claims, AP reported.

De la Huerta told CBS News that the first rape occurred in October 2010 after Weinstein gave her a ride home from a party, insisted on having a drink in her apartment and forced himself on her.

"He pushed me on the bed. and it happened all very suddenly", de la Huerta told CBS.

After that, de la Huerta says Weinstein continued to call her and eventually showed up in the lobby of her building in December.

The NYPD previously confirmed one active Weinstein investigation regarding actress Lucia Evans, who accused the disgraced mogul of forcing her into oral sex in 2004.

The actress's claims are very similar to ones shared by many among the more than 60 women who have come forward accusing Weinstein of assault, harassment, or rape.


Boyce told reporters Friday that because this impending case dates back seven years, an arrest of Weinstein couldn't be made immediately.

A person who answered the phone and said he was a manager at the Chestnut Fine Foods & Provisions restaurant in Phoenix said Weinstein dined there Thursday night.

"He hushed me and said, 'Let's talk about this in your apartment, '" de la Huerta said. "No doubt", Boyce said of Weinstein.

The Times and The Telegraph report the accuser is "Paz de la Huerta, 33, who appeared in the U.S. television series Boardwalk Empire", and "alleged both attacks took place in her own home about a month apart".

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.

Weinstein has not commented on the latest allegations, but has repeatedly denied accusations of non-consensual sex.
