LAPD Opens Sexual Assault Investigation Into Steven Seagal

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has opened an investigation into a sexual assault accusation against Steven Seagal, it has confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter.

Seagal has been accused of misconduct by actors like Rae Dawn Chong, Juliana Margulies, and Portia De Rossi, who said the actor unzipped his trousers in front of her.

Regina Simons, the part Navajo, part Sioux teen, was a hired as an extra on On Deadly Ground after going to the open call for the 1994 action film taking place on Native land in Alaska.

Both Simons and Dutch former model Faviola Dadis have filed reports about Seagal to the LAPD in the last month.

Simons' allegation is the latest in a string of misconduct accusations against Seagal, many of which were reported in November 2017.

Seagal did not immediately return a request for comment. "But no one talks about the freeze". She said she thought it was for a casting, but found him alone. The only way I'm able to describe it is I literally felt like I left my body.

De Rossi has said Seagal unzipped his trousers during a private office audition and Julianna Margulies has said that she had a similar incident with Seagal when she was 23.

The now-mother of two said she was "completely caught off guard" when the actor, who she said was three times her size, allegedly forced himself on her. She said he rubbed her hand and neck, which seemed odd, and then went to the set. "Even now, my 43-year-old mind knows how to process this and understand what a loving relationship is and what consensual sex is". Tears were coming down my face and I know that it hurt. She told her story to her bishop, who also corroborated the story.

The actress said she left quickly after he asked her if he could touch her silk shirt.

"I ran out and called my agent".

"I was crying when he was on top of me", she said. "I cried the whole way home". "I was like, 'Oh my God, how could this have happened?' So, I blamed a lot of it on myself and tried to pretend it didn't happen".
