The NYPD might be on the verge of arresting alleged serial sexual harasser and rapist Harvey Weinstein, according to The Guardian.
New York City’s chief of detectives, Robert Boyce, told reporters that the city had accumulated a body of evidence against Weinstein in several sexual assault cases filed by multiple victims who remain unnamed, as reported by NBC 4.
He also commented on the notion that the cases could be presented to a grand jury.
“We are still accumulating evidence,” he said. “It’s going very, very well. We have people who are getting ready to go to the grand jury.”
As far as a timeline for grand jury proceedings, Boyce directed inquiries to Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance.
“I would ask you to talk to Cy Vance about that – DA Vance – it’s his case right now. We’ve accumulated quite a bit of evidence and I would ask you to ask him for his schedule, where it goes forward,” he said.
An arrest warrant could be issued in the next day or so, according to multiple outlets, though an actual arrest may hinge on Weinstein setting foot in the city, something that he has, so far, been loathe to do.
Though the victims remain unnamed, the probe was instigated by accusations made by Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta.
As previously reported by CrimeOnline, in February the LAPD sent three sexual assault cases involving Weinstein to the district attorney’s office, though it has yet to be announced if the disgraced Hollywood mogul will face charges there.
