NYPD detectives may fly to Los Angeles next week to interview women who say they were sexually assaulted by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, a police source said.
Since the Weinstein scandal broke, police have opened two investigations, one for a 2004 incident in which then-aspiring actress Lucia Evans accused Weinstein of forcing her to perform oral sex in his Tribeca office, and another focused on an incident in which he allegedly committed a forcible sex act on a woman more than 10 years ago, police sources said.
Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Thursday that “several” calls to police have alleged wrongdoing by Weinstein outside of New York City.
NYPD investigators have already been out of state to conduct “interviews with witnesses and victims,” the source said. More interviews could take place in Los Angeles depending on how the investigation proceeds in the next few days, the source said.

Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Thursday that “several” other calls to police have alleged wrongdoing by Weinstein outside of New York City. Police in other states and overseas have been forwarded that information, Boyce said.
