Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is being accused of groping a 22-year-old Italian model on the opening weekend of his Radio City “New York Spring Spectacular,” police sources said Monday.
The model told cops that the Oscar-winning Hollywood producer sexually abused her after coaxing her to his Manhattan office on the pretense of talking business, sources told the Daily News.
The woman told cops that Weinstein — a married, 63-year-old father of five — groped her private area and her breasts around 6 p.m. Friday in his third-floor office at the Tribeca Film Center on Greenwich St., the sources said.
“He asked if her breasts were real before touching them,” a police source said. “She asked him to stop and he put his hand up her skirt. He asked for a kiss, she responded ‘No.’”
Weinstein has been questioned by police and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance will determine whether to file charges, a police source said.
“He initiated the contact,” another police source said of Weinstein. “He saw her and spoke to her. She didn’t know who he was until he approached her.”
The source said the women went to Weinstein’s office “at his request to talk business.”
