Early last month, Brooklyn Nine Nine actor Terry Crews shared his own experience of sexual assault in Hollywood and now the actor has doubled down and filed a police report with the LAPD.

Crews, who stars in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, publicly voiced the allegations for the first time last month, tweeting that a "high-level Hollywood executive" had "groped my privates" at a party past year.

"My wife n I were at a Hollywood function a year ago n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates", he tweeted on October 10, days after movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment scandal was revealed by media.

He revealed that he contacted the man's colleagues the next day and received an apology but "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' wife witnessed the assault when it happened.

Sources tell TMZ the person Crews named on the police report is Adam Venit, who heads up the motion picture group at William Morris Endeavor.
