Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, accused of sexual harassment, came to the police in New York and surrendered. According to media reports, he was arrested on charges of rape and will soon be charged.

The New York Times wrote , citing sources, that this is only the beginning of investigations against Weinstein. He will be sued by actress Lucia Evans, who was one of the first to say about the harassment of the producer and told that he forced her to oral sex. Also, the testimony of actress Pas de la Huerta will be investigated, according to which Weinstein twice raped her.

Up to this point, Weinstein denied the allegations of sexual harassment, assaults and rape, and also that forced his victims to remain silent. Representatives of the producer have not yet commented. It is not known whether the producer will be able to get him released on bail.

Since October 2017, 71 women have described the harassment of Weinstein. The charges are investigated by the police of Los Angeles, New York and London. After this, a large-scale campaign against harassment began in the USA.
