  • Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein at the Elysee Palace Paris France

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.

The Manhattan district attorney has also assigned a senior sex crimes prosecutor to the case, working in collaboration with NY police, his office confirmed.

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. De la Huerta says Weinstein started by trying to kiss her, but when she brushed him away, "He pushed me onto the bed and his trousers were down and he lifted up my skirt".

On December 23 of the same year, she says Weinstein showed up in the lobby of her apartment building, they went upstairs, and he allegedly raped her a second time.

The disgraced movie mogul could be facing criminal charges.

Dozens of women have accused the former movie star producer of sex assault.

"He's like a pig", de la Huerta told the magazine.

The Times and The Telegraph report the accuser is "Paz de la Huerta, 33, who appeared in the United States television series Boardwalk Empire", and "alleged both attacks took place in her own home about a month apart". The actress said she'd been drinking at the time and was scared of Weinstein. "The investigation is on-going", the NYPD said in a statement Thursday night.

"We have an actual case here, so we are happy with where the investigation is right now. We then sought to garner corroboration. and we found it, corroboration", Chief Boyce said.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they speak publicly, which de la Huerta and Guiterrez have done.

Weinstein has not commented on the latest accusation but has repeatedly denied allegations of non-consensual sex.

On another front, a New York City AIDS charity, amfAR, confirmed on Friday a report that it has received a subpoena from federal prosecutors investigating Weinstein's involvement in 2015 fundraising event.
