Harvey Weinstein is reportedly set to turn himself in to New York police on Friday.

The former movie mogul is said to be facing charges in relation to at least one accuser, Lucia Evans.

TMZ report that Ms Evans claims Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004.

He is set to turn himself in to the police between 7am and 9am local time, following a months long investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and the NYPD.

The publication reports that the United States Attorney in New York is also investigating him.

Citing two law enforcement officials, The New York Times reports that it is unclear which exact charge Weinstein will be facing.

It is also not immediately clear if charges will be filed in connection to other victims.

The controversy around the 66-year-old film producer began after a New York Times report late last year.

It contained allegations of sexual harassment and assault from a number of women, including actress Ashley Judd.

Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow both spoke about their own experiences with Weinstein, with the Shakespeare in Love actress saying she was “petrified” of his advances.

He has been accused of rape, assault and other allegations of sexual misconduct.

Weinstein has “unequivocally denied” any allegations of non-consensual sex.
