NYPD Confirms Harvey Weinstein Questioned for Allegedly Groping Woman

Police questioned Harvey Weinstein after the indie studio chief allegedly groped a 22-year-old woman in Tribeca on Friday, a NYPD spokesman confirmed to Variety.

The woman accused the Weinstein Co. boss of touching her breasts and hips, police confirmed. The Daily News, which broke the story, reported that the incident took place at around 6 p.m. Friday at the Tribeca Film Center.

But another source told Variety that there were no official events held at the Tribeca Film Center on Friday night, and the Weinstein Co. shares office space with Tribeca Enterprises. Police could not immediately confirm if the alleged assault took place at Weinstein’s offices or in another part of the building.

An investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed. Neither the district attorney’s office nor the Weinstein Co. responded to requests for comment. Weinstein is expected to attend the New York premiere of his latest drama “Woman in Gold” at MoMA on Monday night with star Helen Mirren.

Weinstein is a towering figure in the film world. As the founder of Miramax and later the Weinstein Co., he has overseen such influential and award-winning films as “Pulp Fiction,” “The King’s Speech” and “The Artist.” He is married to fashion designer Georgina Chapman.
