- London police have widened their investigation into movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. They have received 11 sexual assault allegations against the producer by seven women. More than 60 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault this month.
London police are investigating 11 allegations of sexual assault by seven women against Harvey Weinstein.
Officers from the London Metropolitan Police’s child abuse and sexual offences unit opened an investigation into the movie producer earlier this month, but have since widened their investigation.
The Met did not name Weinstein, but publications including Sky News and The Hollywood Reporter have connected him with the probe, which is codenamed Operation Kaguyak, according to the Evening Standard.
A spokeswoman for the Met told Business Insider that the force did not name individuals linked to cases, but outlined the allegations, all of sexual assault, made against the same man over past three weeks.
Here they are in chronological order, based on the date the allegation was made to the police:
- October 11: Sexual assault of a woman in west London in the late 1980s. This case was referred by Merseyside Police by a woman currently living in Liverpool. October 14: Woman in Westminster in 2010 and 2011, and in Camden in 2015. October 15: Woman in Westminster in 1992. October 20: Woman outside the UK’s jurisdiction in the early 1980s. October 24: Woman in Westminster in the mid-1990s. October 26: Woman outside the UK’s jurisdiction in 2012, and in Westminster in 2013 and 2014. October 28: Woman in Westminster in 1994.
No arrests have been made, the Met spokeswoman said. The two allegations of sexual assault outside the UK will also be passed to the local police forces in due course.
More than 60 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault, including rape, since The New York Times broke a story on October 5 detailing multiple allegations against him.
