The New York Post: Weinstein sex-abuse allegation under investigation by London’s Metropolitan Police

Harvey Weinstein at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

Harvey Weinstein is now being probed on both sides of the pond as it emerged Thursday that London’s Metropolitan police are investigating a sexual abuse allegation against him.

“The Met has been passed an allegation of sexual abuse by Merseyside police on Wednesday 11 October,” Scotland Yard told the Guardian. “The allegation will be assessed by officers from the child abuse and sexual offences command.”

There is no indication, however, that the complaint relates to child abuse, the Guardian noted.

Merseyside is an English county that encompasses Liverpool in the western part of the country.

As the New York Post reported Wednesday, detectives with the NYPD are also looking into accusations that Weinstein raped and sexually assaulted at least three women, including Lucia Evans, who said the movie exec forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004 in his Tribeca office.

“He’s a super-predator. His conduct shows he’s been at this a long time and he’s a professional at it,” a police official reportedly told the Post.

An expanded version of this report appears at the New York Post site PageSix.com.
