Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department will investigate sexual allegations against comedian Bill Cosby made by former Playboy playmate Chloe Goins.
Chloe and her lawyer Spencer Kuvin filed a complaint with the LAPD on January 14, reported Ace Showbiz.
Chloe and Spencer later held a news conference outside LAPD headquarters. She kept mum and let her lawyer do the talking.
"Ms Goins is potentially the first victim to come forward now who we believe is within the California statute of limitations to bring criminal charges against Mr Cosby," Spencer told reporters.
"She fully understands and accepts the immense responsibility that her decision to be here today carriers," he went on, "Ms Goins and I are here for two reasons: for justice and accountability. Apparently Mr Cosby feels brazen enough and confident enough in his actions to make jokes at some of his shows about the 25-plus women that have now come forward."
LAPD Commander Andy Smith said, "We will take a report from anybody, and we'll initiate an investigation on any allegations of criminal misconduct. We're happy to do that, and we will push forward with an investigation on that case."
Chloe had earlier said she met 77-year-old Cosby when attending a summer party with a female friend at the Playboy Mansion in 2008.
