Harvey Weinstein: London police confirm investigation into producer for alleged assault

An individual came forward Wednesday about an incident from the 1980s.

Merseyside Police released a similar statement adding that the allegation stems from "in the London area in the 1980s."

While neither police agency named Weinstein in their statements, they sent along the statements when asked specifically about the beleaguered movie mogul.

But the NYPD told ABC News today that they are currently "conducting a review to determine if there are any additional complaints relating to the Harvey Weinstein matter."

"Guys, I'm not doing OK but I'm trying. I got to get help. You know what, we all make mistakes. ... A second chance, I hope," Weinstein said in a video shot Wednesday outside his daughter's Los Angeles home obtained by ABC News.

In a statement last week after the original Times story was published, Weinstein admitted to causing "a lot of pain" and apologized for his inappropriate behavior. "I so respect all women and regret what happened," he added last week.

But Weinstein's attorney Charles Harder told ABC News that the Times article was "saturated with false and defamatory statements," and as a result, he was preparing a lawsuit against the newspaper. Any proceeds from the lawsuit would be donated to women's charities, Harder added.

When the New Yorker article came out on Tuesday and included claims of sexual assault by a number of women, Weinstein's spokesperson denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex."

"Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. Mr. Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual," according to a statement from Weinstein's spokesperson.

ABC News' Lesley Messer, Aaron Katersky, Kelly McCarthy and Joseph Simonetti all contributed to this report.
