LAPD opens investigation after Terry Crews files police report alleging sexual assault

TMZ reported Wednesday that Crews filed a report, but Los Angeles police told BuzzFeed News they could only confirm that Crews met with officers of the Hollywood station.

As The Hollywood Reporter notes, the suspect in Crews' police report is believed to be WME agent Adam Venit, who was put on leave from the agency after the allegations surfaced last month.

"We're going to go all the way", the 49-year-continued when asked if he planned on filing a lawsuit against the executive.

NBC News' sources indicate that Crews named William Morris Endeavor talent agent Adam Venit as his alleged attacker.

See Crews' tweets about the incident in the Twitter Moment below.

TripAdvisor Will Flag Hotels Where Sexual Assaults Have Been Reported
TripAdvisor replaced the comments with a generic explanation that the posts were "inappropriate" and "off-topic". TripAdvisor said it had run afoul of a former policy that allowed only "family-friendly" language.

As that's within the statute of limitations in California, it's possible Crews coming forward could trigger a criminal investigation.

USA TODAY has reached out to Crews' representative for comment.

In a Twitter thread tonight, he wrote: "This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why?"

"'240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho' would be the headline the next day".

He had wanted to punch the guy out, he said, but made a decision to let things be.

Harry Potter AR Game in Development from the Makers of Pokémon Go
Niantic has said it was the success of Pokemon Go , and its "unprecedented scale", that made this development possible. This game is also going to be based on augmented reality much like the way Pokemon Go was.

Crews said he spent the rest of the evening and the next day speaking to "everyone I knew that worked with" the exec about what happened, and added that the man behind the alleged assault called him and apologized.

"I let it go", he said.

At that time, he concluded by saying, "I understand and empathise with those who have remained silent".

The report is thought to pertain to the allegation of sexual assault Crews tweeted about last month against a powerful male Hollywood executive. "(Yes) R you prepared 2b ostracized?(No)".
