Former ‘Gossip Girl’ star Ed Westwick is under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department, following allegations made by actress Kristina Cohen that he raped her three years ago.

A spokesperson for the police force informed media outlets on Wednesday (November 8th) that authorities are formally investigating Westwick, after a police report was filed the previous day and obtained by Deadline. While the police didn’t officially comment on the nature of the inquiry, it has been widely reported that the 30 year old English actor is being investigated for sexual assault.

“Suspect forced victim to have sexual intercourse inside his residence… three years ago,” a section of the police report read.

Deadline also reported that two witnesses have come forward to support Cohen’s testimony. Cohen’s sister Katalina Colgate, and former child actor Blaise Godbe Lipman, both say that she shared the story of what happened with them years ago.

“Very shortly after it happened, she told me that she was raped. She told me and my other sister. I was furious,” Colgate reportedly told the publication.

27 year old ‘Ladies Like Us’ actress Cohen had taken to Facebook on Monday this week to reveal her ordeal, in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct from Hollywood power players making headlines over the last five weeks.

“I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to fuck me. I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me.”

Westwick has strongly denied the allegations, sharing on social media: “I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape.”
