London Police Investigating Second Kevin Spacey Claim

Kevin Spacey: UK police 'investigate sexual assault claim'

A statement from the Metropolitan Police revealed that the alleged sexual assault took place in Lambeth, the area where the theatre is located.

According to Scotland Yard, two men accuse the same man of having sexually assaulted them in that place, one in 2005 and the other in 2008.

"On Friday, November 17, a further allegation was made about the same man".

This allegation was brought to the attention of police last Friday. "Spacey to feel free to touch us", Cavazos stated.

Kate Varah, the Old Vic's executive director, issued an apology on November 16 to the alleged victims.

"He said: 'It's big, isn't it?' He leaned over and tried to pull my hand towards it", Beal told The Sun.

The BBC has contacted Spacey's legal representatives for comment. "There are a lot of us who have a 'Kevin Spacey story'".
