According to The Blast, who was first to break the news, Anderson is accused of allegedly assaulting a woman previous year after she catered one of his events.
A representative for the black-ish star says, "It's unfortunate that anyone can file a police report whether it is true or false. Anthony unequivocally disputes the claim", Anthony's reps said in a statement. The events were said to take place past year, and the woman in question only came forward after the #MeToo Movement inspired her to do so.

Trump's comments came shortly after CNBC aired an interview with the president in which he bashed the Fed's planned rate hikes . Trump defended his comments to CNBC by saying he is "just saying the same thing that I would have said as a private citizen".
Though the woman apparently did not file a report directly after the alleged incident occurred, according to The Blast, she felt comfortable coming forward months later due in part to the Me Too movement, which has seen numerous women open up about experiences of abuse at the hands of powerful men in the entertainment industry. But The Blast, which first reported the news, said the investigation stems from a woman who told the department that Anderson assaulted her after she catered one of his events. Meanwhile, the LAPD has since confirmed to The Blast that Anderson is in fact under criminal investigation.
Anderson, 47, is best known for portraying Andre Johnson on the ABC sitcom Black-ish, and as the host of the game show To Tell The Truth. Those charges were dropped when a judge ruled that the case lacked probable cause.
Back in 2004, an extra on Hustle & Flow's set accused Anderson and an assistant director of allegedly raping her in a trailer.
