Weinstein is expected to be charged with raping one woman and forcing another to perform oral sex on him, the New York Times reported, citing unidentified law enforcement officials.

More than 75 women have accused Weinstein of wrongdoing around the globe.

The NYPD released a statement, saying, "The NYPD thanks these fearless survivors for their courage to come forward and seek justice".

"One of the hardest conversations I had over and over again with these fearless women was that in addition to the sacrifice they were making in telling this story, they didn't think they would ever be heard if they did take that leap, let alone to see actual accountability", he said.

Harvey Weinstein is led out of the New York Police Department's First Precinct in handcuffs after being arrested on May 25 in New York City.

The Time's Up anti-harassment movement - launched on January 1 - said the producer "shattered the lives of an untold number of women", adding that it looked "forward to seeing justice prevail".

Salma Hayek, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie are among than two dozen actresses who say they were sexually harassed by the producer.

"Mr Weinstein did not invent the casting couch".

The investigation is being run by the U.S. District Attorney's Office in the Southern District of NY.

She also tweeted, "We got you, Harvey Weinstein, we got you".

"We know that he has high-powered lawyers, that he's not above employing very dubious methods to extract information", she said. "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances", reads the statement.

"Even tonight, sitting among you, there are those who still have to be held accountable for their conduct against women", she said. When asked if she could say something to Weinstein at that moment, McGowan simply said, "We got you". "We believe that they are not factually supported by the evidence", reports BBC NEWS.

Weinstein was understood to have had his mugshots and fingerprints taken before being driven away in an SUV from the station, close to his former Miramax office in Tribeca and the townhouse he once shared with his estranged wife.

Less than a year ago, Sivan - an accomplished TV journalist, based in Los Angeles - came forward with one of the most shocking tales to come out of the Weinstein chapter of the Me Too era.
