Manhattan prosecutors are investigating actor Paz de la Huerta’s accusations that Harvey Weinstein raped her twice in her apartment in 2010.

The actor told CBS News for a report aired Thursday that the first incident happened in October 2010 after Weinstein gave her a ride home after a party. The actor told the network the second rape occurred in December 2010.

Manhattan district attorney’s spokeswoman Joan Vollero says a senior sex crimes prosecutor has been assigned to the investigation, which is being conducted along with New York police.

Weinstein’s representative, Sallie Hofmeister, says the 65-year-old Oscar winner denies any allegations of non-consensual sex. De la Huerta’s agent did not return an email message seeking comment.

Police in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and London are also investigating allegations against Weinstein.
