Little more than a month since the New York Times and New Yorker published exposes about Hollywood studio head Harvey Weinstein's decades-long history of preying on women, the New York Police Department said one of its two investigations into Weinstein is nearing its end – and that it's preparing to arrest Weinstein on charges of rape.
New York City police investigators believe a 2010 rape allegation made against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is "credible" and they are gathering evidence to seek an arrest warrant. Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Friday that investigators have interviewed Paz de la Huerta, who publicly accused Weinstein of raping her twice in her apartment. Boyce said detectives found the "Boardwalk Empire" actress' story believable and corroborated portions of her account. Speaking at a police briefing, Boyce also said that if Weinstein were in New York now and the assault allegation were recent, "we'd go right away and make the arrest. No doubt."
