The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office is reviewing a new sexual assault case involving the two-time Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey, authorities disclosed Wednesday.

Greg Risling, a district attorney's spokesman, was quoted by the Los Angeles Times as saying that the investigation under review was received Tuesday from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

The report also said detectives of the sheriff's office last May began an investigation on a "sexual assault involving Mr. Kevin Spacey" which occurred in October 2016. In this case, the 58-year-old actor was accused of attacking a man in Malibu, a coast city in Los Angeles county.

This is the second case presented to the district attorney's office from law enforcement against Spacey, who is under investigation both in the US and in Europe over many alleged forced sexual encounters.

Discovery star Anthony Rapp started a storm of accusation against Spacey last year, claiming Spacey made sexual advances toward him in his New York apartment in 1986 when Rapp was 14 years old.

As a result, scandal-plagued Spacey was fired by the streaming service, Netflix, from the cast of the last season of "House of Cards" and was also edited out of the film "All the Money in the World."

His most recent film, Billionaire Boys Club, bombed over the weekend, grossing only 618 US dollars from 11 theaters.
