(AllHipHop News) Anthony Anderson is currently under criminal investigation for assaulting a woman, allegations he strongly denies.
The Blast reports the unidentified female filed a police report with the Los Angeles Police Department claiming the "Black-ish" actor assaulted her months ago.
LAPD has confirmed it is an open investigation, stating, “We have a crime report listing him as a suspect in a crime.”
The woman first met Anderson while catering an event for the actor, but it was their second meeting to discuss future business opportunities that the alleged assault took place.
Sources close to the victim reveal it was the #MeToo movement that gave her the courage to come forth.
Anthony’s rep states, “It’s unfortunate that anyone can file a police report, whether it is true or false. The authorities have not contacted Anthony or any of his representatives about this matter. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim.”
Stay tuned for updates.
