LAPD Investigating Terry Crews’ Allegation That He Was Groped

UPDATED: The Los Angeles Police Department has opened an investigation over Terry Crews’ allegation that he was groped, an LAPD spokesperson confirmed to Variety on Thursday.

Captain Cory Palka of the LAPD Hollywood station previously confirmed that Crews had filed a police report on Wednesday over the alleged assault. The robbery/homicide division of the LAPD, which also deals with sex crimes, is handling the investigation. Authorities would provide no further details beyond that Crews is listed as the victim in the case.

Last month, Crews tweeted that the unfolding Harvey Weinstein scandal hit close to home for him, as he said he was groped by a “high-level Hollywood executive.” Variety broke the news on Nov. 3 that Crews has been preparing to name Adam Venit, the longtime head of WME’s motion picture group, as the executive who allegedly assaulted him.

Venit is on leave as WME investigates the allegation. Crews is a client of the agency, which declined to comment.

Crews’ tweets came as the New York Times and New Yorker dropped bombshell reports detailing decades of sexual harassment and assault allegations against disgraced mogul Weinstein in early October. In his tweets, Crews said the incident occurred in full view of his wife.

“Jumping back I said What are you doing?! My wife saw everything n we looked at him like he was crazy. He just grinned like a jerk,” he wrote at the time. “I was going to kick his a– right then— but I thought twice about how the whole thing would appear.”

Representatives for Crews declined further comment.
