HOLLYWOOD—The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office is currently reviewing the sexual assault case made against Emmy nominated actor Anthony Anderson, 47. The Los Angeles Police Department concluded their investigation of Anderson and presented the case to the District Attorney on Thursday, August 9.
News of the sexual assault incident broke last month when a woman reported to police that Anderson sexually assaulted her after meeting him at an event back in 2017. Anderson denied the allegation and a spokesperson for the actor stated to USA Today, “It is unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false.”
The actor was nominated for an Emmy for his role as Dre Johnson on the hit show “black-ish.” In 2004, Anderson was accused of raping a woman, but charges were later dismissed.
In addition to Anderson’s case, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office is reviewing several other cases presented by the Los Angeles Police Department and the Beverly Hills Police Department against film producer Harvey Weinstein and actor Steven Seagal.
Anderson has appeared in the following films “Barbershop,” “Hustle & Flow,” “The Departed,” “Scream 4” and recently as the voice of a character in the animated flick “Ferdinand.”
