Terry Crews Files Police Report Against Male Hollywood Exec Who Sexually Assaulted Him In Front Of His Wife
Terry Crews has filed a police report claiming that a top Hollywood executive sexually assaulted him last year. The actor opened up about the incident last month, following news of the Harvey Weinstein sex assault scandal.

The "Brooklyn Nine Nine" star revealed he had been groped by a "a high-level Hollywood executive" at a celebrity party that he attended with his wife, Rebecca King-Crews, in 2016.

Variety has now identified agent Adam Venit, the head of talent agency William Morris Endeavor's motion picture group, as Crews' alleged groper.

Crews reportedly walked into the Los Angeles Police Department earlier this week and filed a police report claiming he was sexually assaulted. The report could lead to a criminal investigation over the incident. 

Venit has reportedly been placed on leave by William Morris as they investigate the sex assault claims. Venit represents director Brett Ratner, and actors Casey Affleck and Dustin Hoffman.

Crews made the allegations on October 10, in the wake of the claims against Harvey Weinstein. 

Terry took to Twitter to share his story. He tweeted, "This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME."

He explained that he had attended a "Hollywood function: in 2016 with his wife, when "a high-level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates."

Crews recalled that he jumped back and asked the man what he was doing, but claimed "he just grinned like a jerk" at him and his wife. 

Terry did not identify the alleged groper in his tweets, but insiders claim the actor is planning to name him soon. Crews is managed by William Morris Endeavor (WME). 

Crews said he was afraid of fighting back against the Hollywood executive because he was worried he would be arrested.

Crews also admitted he was concerned that talking about the incident would ruin his career. "I decided not 2 take it further becuz I didn’t want 2b ostracized— par 4 the course when the predator has power n influence," Crews wrote.

He continued, "I let it go. And I understand why many women who this happens to let it go. Who’s going 2 believe you? (few) What r the repercussions?(many) Do u want 2 work again? (Yes) R you prepared 2b ostracized? (No)." 

Crews previously said that he told people he knew that had worked with the executive about what had happened at the party. 

Terry also revealed that the executive called him the following day to apologize, "but never really explained why he did what he did."
