Terry Crews has filed a police report with the Los Angeles police department against an influential talent agent he says groped him, according to NBC News. The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star came forward with his own experience of being assaulted by a Hollywood power player in the wake of multiple investigations into Harvey Weinstein’s decades-long history of sexual assault and harassment. In early October, Crews tweeted that a “high level” exec had grabbed his genitals at a party last year in full view of his wife, after which the individual just “grinned like a jerk.”

Citing “law enforcement sources familiar with the case,” NBC News reports Crews filed a report with the LAPD on Wednesday that’s now been forwarded to the robbery-homicide division. According to Variety, the exec in question is Adam Venit, the head of the motion picture group at William Morris Endeavor, where Crews is a client. Representatives and spokespeople for the agency, Venit, and Crews declined to comment on the matter. NBC News was similarly unable to get anyone on the record, though when the outlet called a number “registered to Venit,” a man said “I know nothing about that” before hanging up.
