Actress Paz de la Huerta tells CBS News that in October 2010, Weinstein offered to give her a ride home to her New York City apartment after a party, because the two lived in the same neighborhood.

On Thursday, "Boardwalk Empire" actress Paz de la Huerta told Vanity Fair that Weinstein raped her twice in 2010.

The factors that made her story credible included: "The ability to articulate each and every minute of the crime, where she was, where they met, where this happened and what he did", he said.

"I was very traumatized", de la Huerta said in the interview.

The infamous movie producer has come under fire, with dozens of women accusing him of sexually harassing or attacking them. We then sought to garner corroboration - this happened seven years ago - and we found corroboration. "As this is an active investigation, we will not be commenting further".

It was in November 2010 that he allegedly raped her for the first time.

She told CBS that she had been drinking that night and was in no state to agree to having sex.

"She put forth a credible and detailed narrative to us", Boyce said.

De la Huerta said the second assault happened just more than a month later, in December.

Weinstein, who was ousted from his own company amid the scandal, has repeatedly stated through a spokesman that "allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied".

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they speak publicly, which de la Huerta and Guiterrez have done.

"The office has been working with our partners in the NYPD since the new allegations came to light", Vollero said. "The investigation is on-going".

Is there enough evidence for prosecutors to file charges against Weinstein?
