LOS AN­GE­LES — Po­lice in Los An­ge­les say they are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a sex­ual as­sault re­port filed against for­mer “Gos­sip Girl” star Ed West­wick days af­ter an ac­tress ac­cused him of rap­ing her.

LAPD spokesman Of­fi­cer Michael Lopez said the re­port was filed Tues­day and the Bri­tish ac­tor is listed as a sus­pect. In a Face­book post Mon­day, ac­tress Kristina Cohen said West­wick sex­u­ally as­saulted her three years ago. The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter says it has ob­tained a copy of the po­lice re­port and ver­i­fied it was filed by Cohen.

West­wick said in a so­cial me­dia post Tues­day that he doesn’t know Cohen and added: “I have never forced my­self in any man­ner, on any woman. I cer­tainly have never com­mit­ted rape.” West­wick’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives didn’t im­me­di­ately re­turn a re­quest for fur­ther com­ment Wed­nes­day.
