Actress Nicole Eggert filed a police report Tuesday in connection with her allegations of sexual abuse by her former “Charles in Charge” co-star Scott Baio, which Eggert says occurred when she was a minor.
The Hollywood Reporter quotes a statement today from attorney Lisa Bloom, representing Eggert, which says: “Yesterday Nicole Eggert and I met with two police detectives from the sexual assault unit at my law firm. Nicole answered all of their questions for over an hour and told her story of sexual abuse by Scott Baio when she was a minor. A witness, Alexander Polinsky, appeared as well and told the detectives about inappropriate touching he witnessed, as well as his own allegations of bullying by Scott Baio.”
Authorities confirmed they had the report but did not release details.
Bloom’s statement adds: “We appreciate the Los Angeles police detectives’ interest in this case, and we will fully cooperate with their investigation. Many have reached out to Nicole and me to say that they witnessed inappropriate behavior from Scott Baio when Nicole was underage. We provided a list of those names to the police. If anyone else has information about this matter please contact us.”
