Sexual assault investigations against #HarveyWeinstein and #JamesToback begin

Beverly Hills police said Tuesday the department has open investigations into movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and filmmaker James Toback after recently receiving allegations that they committed sexual assaults.

In a statement released Tuesday evening, police did not provide details of the investigations but urged anyone who believes he or she was a victim to come forward.

Weinstein is already under investigation in Los Angeles, New York and London. Toback has been accused by more 200 women of sexual harassment and abuse, according to a Times tally.

Since a New York Times article Oct. 5 first revealed allegations of sexual misconduct against Weinstein, more than 50 woman have alleged they were sexually harassed or assaulted by the former independent film impresario. Weinstein was fired from his job earlier this month.
