洛杉矶警方说,一位不具名人士指称受到性攻击之后,已经开始对电影制片人温斯坦进行调查。

洛杉矶警察局星期四通过推特做出以上宣布。温斯坦最近被他的电影制作公司解雇,并因为类似的性攻击指控在纽约和伦敦被调查。

温斯坦的律师公布了一份书面声明说:“我们否认任何违背意愿性关系的指控。我们不会对不具名的指称做任何回应。”

这是温斯坦的律师团发表的第二份声明,宣称他们的当事人从未参与过违背本人意愿的性关系。

与此同时,获得过奥斯卡奖的女演员露皮塔·尼永奥(Lupita Nyong'o)加入了其他20名女性的行列,指称温斯坦进行性骚扰或试图性攻击。尼永奥发表在星期四纽约时报的文章说,温斯坦和她有若干次见面,强迫她喝酒精饮料,还要求她以性关系换取温斯坦对她职业的帮助。

自从丑闻披露以来,温斯坦除了被电影制片公司结果以外,还被美国电影艺术与科学学院开除,被剥夺了以前获得的几项荣誉。

LA Police Department Investigates Disgraced Producer Harvey Weinstein

The Los Angeles Police department says it has opened an investigation into movie producer Harvey Weinstein after someone made allegations of sexual assault.

The LAPD announced the news via Twitter Thursday.

A police spokesman told the Associated Press that the department interviewed a possible sexual assault victim who reported an incident that occurred in 2013. The investigation is ongoing, and he could not answer any questions about when the interview or incident took place.

Weinstein has recently been fired from his production company and is under investigation in New York and London because of similar allegations.

Weinstein's attorneys have released a statement saying, "We deny any allegations of nonconsensual sex, though obviously can't respond to anonymous allegations."

This was the second statement from Weinstein attorneys saying their client has not participated in nonconsensual sex.

Meantime, Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o has added her story to those of about 40 other women who say Weinstein sexually harassed them or attempted assault. In a piece published in The New York Times Thursday, Nyong'o says Weinstein met with her on several occasions, pressured her to drink alcohol, and pressured her for sex in exchange for help with her career.

In addition to being fired from his company, Weinstein has been thrown out of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and stripped of various other honors.
