The New York City Police Department said Friday that a 2010 rape accusation against Harvey Weinstein is "credible" and the Hollywood mogul would have faced immediate arrest if he were now in the state and the incident was more recent.
She told CBS that Weinstein offered to give her a ride back to her apartment after a party in October 2010 because they lived in the same neighborhood.
Speaking to Vanity Fair on Wednesday, de la Huerta described being "terrified" of Weinstein, who she said assaulted her and then left her in a state of shock.
Boyce said that De le Huerta's story was credible partly because of her "ability to articulate each and every minute of the crime, where she was, where they met, where this happened and what he did".
After that, de la Huerta says Weinstein continued to call her and eventually showed up in the lobby of her building in December.
The disgraced movie mogul could be facing criminal charges.
The NYPD has opened another sexual assault probe against Harvey Weinstein after an actress accused the fallen movie mogul of raping her in 2010.
"We have an actual case here", he added. Either way, they need collaboration from Manhattan prosecutors, who put the brakes on a 2015 investigation into Weinstein.
De la Huerta has appeared in films, like "The Cider House Rules" and "A Walk to Remember", and starred as Lucy Danzinger in HBO's "Boardwalk Empire". The actress said she'd been drinking at the time and was scared of Weinstein.
"We don't want another Roman Polanski on our hands", one source said.
Weinstein, who was ousted from his own company amid the scandal, has repeatedly stated through a spokesman that "allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied".
De la Huerta's allegations are at least the third Weinstein case to have been investigated by NY police in recent years.
