(Newser) – Legal problems are multiplying for Harvey Weinstein and James Toback: The Beverly Hills Police Department said Tuesday that it is investigating "multiple complaints" involving Weinstein, who has been accused of sexually assaulting or harassing scores of women, Deadline reports. The department later issued an almost identical statement about director Toback, whose accusers number in the hundreds. "These cases are under investigation and no further information will be released at this time," police said in a statement, per the Hollywood Reporter. Weinstein was already being investigated by police in Los Angeles, New York City, and the UK. (Rose McGowan says Weinstein raped her and offered her $1 million hush money.)
