Nicole Eggert filed a police report on Tuesday against Scott Baio, less than two weeks after her allegations that her former Charles in Charge co-star sexually abused her while they were on the show together, when she was underage.
Bloom said representatives from the sexual assault unit of the Los Angeles Police Department had questioned Eggert today and taken a statement from her.
While sitting down with Megyn Kelly last week, Eggert alleged that Baio first penetrated her while sitting in his auto at 14-years-old, and after that, sexually abused her "probably once a week" until she turned 16. Alexander, who played Adam Powell on the show, said that he witnessed some of the alleged sexual assaults. I witnessed Scott Baio acting inappropriately towards Nicole Eggert during my first year of working on the show.
Our Eggert sources say detectives told her they would fully investigate and attempt to interview Baio.
"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".
46 year old Eggert starred in CBS" sitcom "Charles In Charge' from 1987 to 1990, alongside Italian-American actor Baio, 11 years her senior.
"If anyone else has information about this matter please contact us".
"It started with shaming - fat shaming me all the time", she claims. "I can't keep up with her, honestly". "Creep", Eggert wrote in a social media post last month.
Late Tuesday, Officer Tony Im, another spokesman for the police, was even more noncommital, saying LAPD is "aware of her allegations but we have no active investigations at this time". However, for crimes that date years before that, "prosecution for the crimes of rape, sodomy, lewd or lascivious acts, continuous sexual abuse of a child, oral copulation, and sexual penetration, if committed against a victim who was under 18 years of age, may be commenced at any time prior to the victim's 40th birthday".
"I was 15 years old standing on the bridge over the L.A. River at Ventura and Vineland in Studio City, and I looked down at that dry river bed and I'm sobbing, I'm sobbing", she said.
"My reputation is being damaged, my family is being put through this, and I'm done", Baio added.
"How any of this could have happened is absolutely impossible", he added.
In a statement to TMZ, Baio's reps said he's pleased Eggert has taken her claims to the police because he feels she'll now have to explain her "ever-changing story" on the record. "I don't know how anybody can believe what she's saying when her first allegation of having sex when (she was) 17 had been proven to be 100% false".
Baio responded with an appearance on Good Morning America and repeated his denial of Eggert's claims.
