Finally, Actor Terry Crews Reports His Sexual Assault to the Police

Finally, Actor Terry Crews Reports His Sexual Assault to the Police

When approached by TMZ as he left the LAPD's Hollywood Division Wednesday, the actor was asked, "Why did you decide to file the police report today?"

On Wednesday, Terry Crews filed a police report to officially take action against the Hollywood head that he claimed groped him a year ago.

Last month, Terry Crews revealed that during a Hollywood function, he was groped by a male studio executive who grabbed his genitals. "Jumping back I said 'What are you doing?' My wife saw everything and we looked at him like he was insane. He just grinned like a jerk".

He said he never took it further, as we would be "ostracized, [which is] par for the course when the predator has power and influence".

Because the alleged incident took place previous year and within the statute of limitations in California, it's possible that a criminal investigation could follow.

Long-time William Morris Endeavor (WME) agent Adam Venit was put on leave of absence from the talent firm after Crews publicly alleged a high-profile entertainment executive groped him at an event. "Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho" would be the headline the next day", he explained.

"LAPD can confirm Terry Crews [met] with officers from the LAPD Hollywood station", a rep told E! Investigation into the claims is undergoing, after Venit had been identified as the alleged groper by Variety.

At the time of the alleged assault, Crews decided not to report the incident to police out of fear of retaliation.

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

"Who's going 2 believe you? (Yes) R you prepared 2b ostracized?(No)".
