NY police say they're building a rape case against Harvey Weinstein

De la Huerta says Weinstein started by trying to kiss her, but when she brushed him away, "He pushed me onto the bed and his trousers were down and he lifted up my skirt".

The second assault happened just a month later in December she says. She has publicly accused Weinstein of raping her twice in her apartment in 2010 and called police about it on October 26.

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. "He kept humping me and it was disgusting".

De la Huerta spoke to CBS News over the phone.

Weinstein insisted they have drinks, she said, and they would up in her apartment.

Weinstein has strenuously denied the allegations levelled against him, which include dozens of women including Gwyneth Paltrow, Lupita Nyong'O and Cara Delevingne. He's like a pig. We're told he asked for a private room. problem was, the room was all glass so people in the restaurant could see him.




Did she tell anyone about the incidents?

She said she shared what happened with her best friend and her therapist. The therapist has written a letter recalling their sessions about the alleged rapes, Vanity Fair reported. Police investigated it as a possible case of forcible touching, a misdemeanor with a two-year time limit for bringing charges under NY law.

Nicholas DiGaudo, a New York Police Department detective, who is leading the Weinstein investigation, interviewed de la Huerta, the magazine said. "The department has reason to assemble its case with particular care".

Investigations amid mounting allegations against Weinstein are taking place in Los Angeles and the United Kingdom.

The disgraced movie producer, 65, showed up at her building after repeatedly calling her, according to the publication.

Weinstein is in Phoenix for treatment following his recent sex scandal, which cost him his marriage, his reputation and his seat on The Weinstein Company board.
