NYPD Special Victims investigators have reached out to at least three women who claim disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein sexually abused and harassed them, police sources said Thursday.

Meanwhile, Scotland Yard is probing allegations from a fourth woman, who claims she was abused by the corpulent film producer in the 1980s, according to reports.

The three victims contacted by the NYPD are among the multiple accusers who surfaced in bombshell articles in the New York Times last week and the New Yorker this week accusing Weinstein of abuse, the source said.

“We ran their names to see if they had reported anything against Weinstein in the past, but they hadn’t,” said the high-ranking source. “We are now reaching out to them to see if they want to make a complaint against him.”

“Ultimately, though, it’s up to them if they want to come forward,” the source added.

The source added it was likely more women would come forward over the next week.

In a statement released Thursday, the NYPD said, “Based on information referenced in published news reports the NYPD is conducting a review to determine if there are any additional complaints relating to the Harvey Weinstein matter. No filed complaints have been identified as of this time.”
