Police Turn Anthony Anderson, Steven Seagal, Harvey Weinstein Sexual Assault Cases Over To L.A. District Attorney


Three separate sexual assault cases involving Anthony Anderson, Steven Seagal and Harvey Weinstein have all been sent to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.



The D.A.’s office said Thursday that sexual assault cases involving Seagal and Anthony Anderson were presented by the Los Angeles Police Department to the D.A.’s office in August.


The Beverly Hills Police Department presented a sexual assault case involving Harvey Weinstein in June.


The L.A. County D.A. is already reviewing two other cases sent by the BHPD and three others sent by the LAPD involving Weinstein. All remain under review.


The LAPD previously confirmed that it was investigating Anderson for a crime on July 20, but did not give any other extra details. A report by The Blast suggested that an unnamed woman alleged that the Black-ish star had assaulted her.


Reps for Anderson denied any wrongdoing, saying in a statement, “It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false. The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.”


In January the LAPD also confirmed  that it had opened an investigation into Seagal, who has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by multiple women, including Jenny McCarthy, Lisa Guerrero, Portia de Rossi and Juianna Margulies.


Weinstein is currently facing multiple sex-crime charges in New York, with new charges added in July after a third woman had come forward with accusations. Weinstein pleaded not guilty to the original charges in June.
