Washington D.C. [USA], Oct 4 (ANI): Director Roman Polanski has now been accused of sexual assault by another woman.

According to The New York Times, Renate Langer, a 61-year-old former actress from Germany, has filed a report with the Swiss police accusing Polanski of raping her at a house in Gstaad when she was 15 in February 1972, reports People Magazine.

Langer said she had not told police until now because she was worried about her parents' reactions.

According to reports, the public prosecutor's office is still deciding if she can pursue a criminal complaint. Langer went to the Swiss police because it has eliminated its statute of limitations on child sex abuse cases (though the law still limits prosecution in old cases).

This brings the total number of rape accusations against Polanski to four. (ANI)
