"He pushed me on the bed and it happened all very suddenly", de la Huerta told CBS. De la Huerta had been drinking and was not in a condition to give consent, she told CBS News. "Then he pushed me onto the bed and his trousers were down and he lifted up my skirt".

Dozens of women have accused the former movie star producer of sex assault.

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

Boyce said that because Weinstein was out of state the police department would need a court-ordered warrant for any arrest.

The Manhattan district attorney's office said a senior prosecutor has been assigned to investigate allegations but didn't comment further.

The accuser, an actress who came forward 10 days ago, told NYPD investigators Weinstein raped her in Lower Manhattan on two different occasions that year, police sources said.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Detective Nicholas DiGaudio who is leading the investigation, said: 'I believe based on my interviews with Paz that from the N.Y.P.D. standpoint we have enough to make an arrest'.

De la Huerta said the second assault occurred about a month later when Weinstein showed up at her building despite her having asked him to leave her alone, and suggested talking about it in her apartment. "When he was done he said he'd be calling me", she said.

Speaking to the publication on Thursday, Paz said: 'I was so terrified of him.

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. We are actively investigating them.

"We have an actual case here".

Weinstein spokesperson Holly Baird issued a statement to USA TODAY Friday: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

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