A woman has reportedly filed a police report with LAPD on Thursday, claiming Harvey Weinstein raped her in 2013, and the Department has launched a criminal investigation, TMZ reports.

The woman, an Italian model/actress claims it all happened when she attended the Italia Film, Fashion and Art Festival in February, 2013.

According to her, she had met Weinstein before, and in fact said at the time, he asked her up to his room but she declined. Insisting, she says Weinstein showed up at her hotel lobby at Mr. C Beverly Hills and asked if he could join her in her room. But that she declined, however, a short time later Weinstein was at her hotel door.

The woman, who was reportedly 34 at the time, tells the L.A. Times, Weinstein forced his way into her room, saying, "I'm not going to f*** you. I just want to talk." She says he repeatedly asked to see her naked, then grabbed her by the hair, yanked her into the bathroom and forcibly raped her.

According to her, she begged him to stop, showing him photos of her kids. It apparently went on for 45 minutes, and Weinstein allegedly left.

She says she was afraid to report him, but informed her priest, a friend and a nanny.
