The LAPD have opened an investigation after actor Terry Crews filed a police report claiming that he was sexually assaulted by a Hollywood agent.

It comes a month after the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star went public with the incident on Twitter, explaining how a "high level Hollywood executive" groped him at a party past year.

"My wife n I were at a Hollywood function previous year n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates", he tweeted on October 10, days after movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment scandal was revealed by media.

"I didn't want to be ostracized-par for the course when the predator has power and influence", Crews wrote.

That man has since been unmasked as Adam Venit, who has been reportedly been placed on leave by WME. Among those he represents are director Brett Ratner and actors Casey Affleck and Dustin Hoffman, all of whom have also been accused of sexual harassment or abuse over the last several weeks.

"I was going to kick his ass right then - but I thought twice about how the whole thing would appear", he added.

Instead, Crews said he let it go and left the event. And I understand why many women who this happens to let it go, ' he wrote.

Terry went on to empathise with the victims of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual harassment for not coming forward sooner, and claimed that Harvey Weinstein is not the only perpetrator. Who's going to believe you? "(Yes) R you prepared 2b ostracized?(No)". Hollywood is not the only business where this happens, and to the casualties of this behaviour - you are not alone.

The "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" actor, who recalled last year's unwanted experience on Twitter last month, filed the report with the Los Angels Police Department on Wednesday, NBC News reported, citing law enforcement sources.
