Los Angeles prosecutors reviewing sexual assault case against Sylvester Stallone

Prosecutors in the USA are reviewing a sexual assault allegation made against Sylvester Stallone which the actor has denied.

Reuters reports the District Attorney's office spokesman Greg Risling said prosecutors are reviewing the case, which was presented by the Santa Monica police department.

Risling declined to provide more details about the alleged assault or to clarify whether California's 10-year statute of limitations applies in the case.

Representatives for Stallone, 71, did not immediately return a call for comment on Wednesday. Media reports from a year ago, however, outline at least two alleged incidents of sexual assault from his past.

The Canadian prime minister has been under attack from various members of the Trump administration since his remarks at the G7. Both aides accused Mr Trudeau of betraying Mr Trump when he gave a news conference after the USA president had departed.

Hundreds of celebrities and powerful people, including actor Kevin Spacey and longtime broadcast journalist Charlie Rose, have been accused of sexual harassment in the wake of the Weinstein scandal. Police say the woman reported the alleged incident to police in Santa Monica in November previous year.

"My client categorically denies the allegations", Stallone's attorney, Martin Singer, told CNN.

The second alleged incident of sexual assault involving Stallone was said to have happened in 1986 at a Las Vegas hotel. "At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by authorities or anyone else regarding this matter".

In response to the allegation, the LA Times reports, Stallone's lawyers filed a complaint with Santa Monica police alleging that the woman who made the claim against the actor filed a false police report.
