The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office is reviewing a sexual assault case against Kevin Spacey, CBS News has confirmed. Police completed their investigation on April 5, and passed the case up to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Entertainment Industry Sex Crimes Task Force, which was created last November to handle Hollywood-related allegations.

The allegations against Spacey, 58, were reported to Los Angeles police in December 2017.

The nature and origin of the sexual assault accusation was not disclosed.

It is unclear if California's statute of limitations on prosecuting criminal sexual assault, which is normally 10 years, would apply.

This latest news comes almost six months after Spacey was first accused by Anthony Rapp of making a sexual advance on him when Rapp was just 14 and Spacey was 26.

While Trump himself was silent on Syria on Friday , giving no further clues on whether American military action is imminent, U.S. Russia's envoy Nebenzia called on the United States, France and Britain "not to bring the world to such a unsafe threshold".

USA filmmaker Tony Montana told Radar Online that Spacey "forcefully" grabbed his crotch in 2003 at the Coronet Bar in Los Angeles.

Rapp said Spacey, then 26, invited him to a party at his apartment and drunkenly tried to seduce him.

The theatre claimed a "cult of personality" had existed around Spacey, and his status and stardom had stopped people, in particular young actors and junior staff, from speaking out about his alleged actions.

Spacey who was sacked from his role on the hit Netflix series House of Cards last October, has been the subject of a number of allegations both in the U.S. and the UK. He was removed from the hit show "House of Cards", which earned him five Emmy nominations. He was also cut out of Ridley Scott's film "All the Money in the World" weeks before its release and was replaced in all of his scenes by Christopher Plummer, who earned an Oscar nomination for the role.
