Investigation of the Actor’s Alleged Past Several Sexual Assault
London Metropolitan Police detectives questioned Russell Brand on allegations about his previous sexual offence case. In September, they conducted an inquiry into a series of accusations of past sexual assaults. The investigation occurred after media reports cited women implicating Brand in several sexual attacks.
Four women accused him of sexual offences, including rape, between 2006 and 2013. They disclosed the incident in the documentary show “Dispatches.” He dropped the allegations describing them as extreme and said that he didn’t have non-consensual sex.
“A man in his 40s attended a police station in South London on Thursday 16 November 2023. He was interviewed under caution by detectives in relation to three non-recent sexual offences. Enquiries continue,” said the Metropolitan Police.
Days after the announcement of the investigation, authorities said they received news of molestation. The circumstances happened in Soho in central London in 2003. The police didn’t reveal the identity of the complainant. However, on Sunday they responded to inquisitions about the journalistic investigation of Brand.
Metropolitan police said they interviewed Brand under security, concerning allegations of three past sexual assaults. They encourage anyone to file a complaint who believes they are victims of a sexual offence despite how long ago it happened.
The inquiry noted that Brand likewise erroneously behaved at work. He also has shown exploitative and oppressive conduct. At that time, he had several jobs at BBC Radio 2 and Channel 4.
