Britain’s media say police in London are investigating a third allegation of sexual assault against two-time Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Spacey.

The Metropolitan Police force said Thursday it had received an allegation “that the man sexually assaulted a man (Victim 3) in 2005 in Westminster.”

The force didn’t identify Spacey as the alleged perpetrator, as authorities in Britain don’t name suspects until they are charged. But it is said the same man was accused of an assault in 2005 and one in 2008, both in the south London borough of Lambeth. The suspect in those cases has been widely named in British media as Spacey.

The 58-year old was artistic director of London’s Old Vic Theatre, located in Lambeth, between 2004 and 2015.
