Now, Paz de la Huerta alleges Harvey Weinstein raped her twice

"He pushed me on the bed and it happened all very suddenly", de la Huerta told CBS. De la Huerta and her attorney have since been working with detectives from the NYPD's special victim's unit and the district attorney's office, she said. "Then he pushed me onto the bed and his trousers were down and he lifted up my skirt".

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.

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

It led to directors using a voice double that de la Huerta said left critics with a bad impression of her work.

Manhattan district attorney's spokeswoman Joan Vollero says a senior sex crimes prosecutor has been assigned to the investigation, which is being conducted along with NY police.

She called police on October 26, he said. "The second time, I was terrified of him", she said.

Weinstein allegedly offered her a ride home to her Tribeca apartment, where de la Huerta said Weinstein demanded to come inside and have a drink.

"He pulled my dress up and unzipped his trousers and raped me", de la Huerta said.

"We have an actual case here", Boyce said.

De la Huerta said she was hesitant to go public with her story, but hopes her word, along with the evidence she said she's helped investigators collect, is enough to put Weinstein in jail.

The investigation comes a month after The New York Times published an expose of sexual harassment allegations against Weinstein, leading to his firing from the company he co-founded and his expulsion from the organization that bestows the Academy Awards.

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

Vance's office declined to bring criminal charges against Weinstein in 2015, after Weinstein admitted in a recorded conversation he groped model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez.
