Harvey Weinstein being investigated by LAPD for alleged rape in 2013

Gibson Johns, AOL.com

Harvey Weinstein is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department for an alleged rape that occurred in 2013, police Captain Billy Hayes confirmed on Thursday.

An unidentified Italian model detailed the account for the LAPD on Thursday morning about the rape that she says happened at Mr. C Beverly Hills hotel at the 8th annual Los Angeles, Italia Film, Fashion and Art Fest in February of 2013.

The event could pose serious legal trouble for Weinstein, as it falls within California's 10-year statute of limitations that was in place in 2013 -- a first for an accusation launched at Weinstein for an encounter that occurred in Southern California. He's also under investigation for two incidents in New York, as well as for claims made by three women in London.

Weinstein's rep told the Los Angeles Times that she "can't respond to some anonymous complaint," when asked for a comment on the new allegations.

The unnamed model-actress says that Weinstein "bullied his way into my hotel room" after briefly being introduced at an event and showing up to her hotel lobby unannounced. 

Women who have accused Harvey Weinstein:

"Once inside, he asked me questions about myself, but soon became very aggressive and demanding and kept asking to see my naked," she recalled to the Los Angeles Times. "He grabbed my by the hair and forced me to do something I did not want to do. He then dragged me to the bathroom and forcibly raped me."

Weinstein "acted like nothing happened" when he left the room after 45 minutes.

"I barely knew this man," she explained. "It was the most demeaning thing ever done to me by far. [...] He made me feel like an object, like nothing with all his power."

Looking back, the woman says that she regrets opening the hotel door for Weinstein and questions why she didn't call the police sooner, but she eventually came forward at the urging of her three children. 

The LA Times reported that she's a well-known figure in Italy who has appeared in various films and on the cover of Italian Vogue. Though she lived in Italy at the time, she now resides in California.

Harvey Weinstein with various celebrities:

The allegation is just the latest in a two-week span that started when the New York Times initially exposed Weinstein's reported abusive treatment of women. Over 40 women have come forward with stories about the influential and powerful producer sexually harassing, assaulting or raping them over the last few decades. Actresses like Gwyneth Paltrow, Rose McGowan and Angelina Jolie are among those who have come forward.

Since the windfall of stories emerged, Weinstein's wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, has left him while he headed to Arizona to reportedly check into rehab for sex addiction. He has since been fired from his perch atop The Weinstein Company and stepped down from the company's board of directors after pressure from the other members.
