‘I’m being raped’: Weinstein accuser details alleged assault

Harvey Weinstein “lunged” at a production assistant and forced oral sex on her despite her repeatedly saying no, his rape trial has heard.

Mimi Haleyi – one of two women whose accusations are at the heart of the hearing – said Weinstein invited her to his New York home in 2006 when she was in her 20s.

“At some point, fairly soon into meeting him there, he kind of came towards me and lunged at me,” she said.

“I got up from the sofa and said, ‘Oh, no, no, no.'”

Ms Haleyi said she “did reject him, but he insisted”, adding: “Every time I tried to get off the bed, he would push me back and hold me down.”
