“Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s” Terry Crews files police report, alleges sexual assault by Hollywood exec
LOS ANGELES — Actor Terry Crews has filed a police report after saying he was sexually assaulted by a high-level Hollywood executive.
Los Angeles police Officer Sal Ramirez said that Crews had filed a report on Wednesday, though Ramirez would not give the subject of the report.
But Crews confirmed for a TMZ cameraman as he walked out of the LAPD Hollywood station that it was about the groping he described last month, and said he also plans a lawsuit.
Crews said hearing reports of dozens of allegations against Harvey Weinstein brought back his own trauma and encouraged him to speak out.
He said he was at a Hollywood function last year with his wife when the male executive, who he has not identified, “groped my privates.”
A representative for Crews did not respond to an email message seeking comment.
Crews stars in “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” on Fox.
