Police report against Ed Westwick over rape claims

LOS ANGELES: Actress Kristina Cohen has filed a police report following claims that she was raped by actor Ed Westwick in his home three years ago.

She filed the report at Los Angeles Police Department's Hollywood precinct, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

A copy of the report, which was shared with the media outlet, states that police are investigating the claim that "suspect forced victim to have sexual intercourse inside his residence three years ago".

The move comes just hours after Westwick responded on Instagram to Cohen's claims of rape, posting a statement that read: "I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape."

Westwick was responding to Cohen's allegations that she posted on Facebook on Monday.

The incident allegedly occurred in 2014 at Westwick's home in the Hollywood Hills, where Cohen was invited by a producer named Kaine Harling, a man Cohen had briefly dated in 2013.

The evening took a turn, she claimed, when "Ed suggested 'we should all f**k'."

Despite wanting to leave, Cohen said she was encouraged to stay for another 20 minutes by Harling "to smooth everything over" while Westwick suggested she nap in a guest bedroom.

"I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me, his fingers entering my body. I told him to stop, but he was strong. I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to f**k me," Cohen said, adding: "I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn't speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me."
