But Boyce said detectives were working collaboratively with the district attorney's office on this case.

Boardwalk Empire actor Paz de la Huerta claimed the movie mogul raped her twice at her apartment in NY in 2010.

"He pushed me on the bed", she said, "and it happened all very suddenly".

After that, de la Huerta says Weinstein continued to call her and eventually showed up in the lobby of her building in December.
