Prosecutors in Los Angeles County are reportedly looking into a case in which an actress says she was sexually assaulted during a casting session when she was 17. The AP reports that the allegations against action star Steven Seagal stem from an incident in 2002.
“Faviola Dadis said at a news conference Monday that she had recently moved to the U.S. from the Netherlands when she was invited to a Beverly Hills hotel room to audition for Seagal for a film he planned to make about Genghis Khan,” the AP reports. “The 33-year-old former model says only Seagal and his bodyguard were in the room when the actor reached under her bikini top and then grabbed her genitals.”
The AP adds: “Dadis said she ended the audition and immediately left. She says she feared being blacklisted if she reported Seagal, and only recently filed a police report.”
