The Los Angeles Police Department has reportedly filed three sexual assault cases involving embattled producer Harvey Weinstein with the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office.
Los Angeles is one of three cities - along with NY and London - where police are investigating claims against the co-founder of the studio Miramax, who was one of the most influential men in Hollywood before more than 70 women accused him of sexual misconduct, including rape.
Los Angeles District Attorney's Office spokesman Greg Risling confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that all three cases are "under review".
Police in London and NY have also been investigating numerous allegations of sexual offences against Weinstein, some dating back decades.
The D.A.'s office is also considering two other cases against Weinstein that were submitted by the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Weinstein's studio, Miramax, was behind such projects as the 1994 film "Pulp Fiction" and the "Project Runway" television series.
One of the most powerful figures in Hollywood, Weinstein's career has unravelled spectacularly following an investigation by the New York Times a year ago. The LAPD also said it was investigating an allegation that Weinstein committed "lewd acts" in 2015.
