And while legal experts continue to argue about whether Weinstein may or may not face prosecution in the United States, British police are actively assessing an alleged Weinstein sex crime.

Although the alleged assault took place in the 1980s, there is no statute of limitations on serious sex crimes in the U.K., meaning that accusations of historic abuse do often get taken to trial.

Three British actresses made public accusations against Weinstein on Thursday, one of whom claimed she was forced to hide in a bathroom to escape his advances and found him masturbating in the doorway when she finally opened it.
