Actress Kristina Cohen said that Westwick sexually assaulted her three years ago on her Facebook on Monday. The Hollywood Reporter says it has obtained a copy of the police report and verified it was filed by Cohen.

The former Gossip Girl star said in a Twitter post Tuesday that he doesn't know Cohen and added: "I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape." Westwick's representatives didn't immediately return a request for further comment Wednesday.

27-year-old Cohen has appeared in a number of movies and TV series since 2009, playing minor roles.
