London (CNN) - Police on both sides of the Atlantic are investigating Harvey Weinstein over allegations of sexual assault as the scandal surrounding the disgraced Hollywood movie mogul mounts.
In London, the Metropolitan Police are investigating an allegation of sexual assault against Weinstein, while in New York, his hometown, police are reviewing claims made by victims interviewed in a bombshell New Yorker article.
The news comes on the heels of mounting accusations of sexual harassment and assault against Weinstein.
The studio executive and political power broker is facing allegations of rape, unwanted touching and assault by a number of women, including accusations of harassment by actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, in recent stories published in The New York Times and The New Yorker.
Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister declined to comment.
The movie producer has previously denied any allegations of nonconsensual sex.
