Model Who Says Bill Cosby Drugged, Assaulted Her at Playboy Mansion Meets with LAPD
Chloe Goins alleges the legendary comedian drugged and sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008
A 24-year-old model who alleges comedian Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her met with Los Angeles Police Department detectives in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Chloe Goins spoke to detectives for two hours, says her attorney, Spencer Kuvin.
At a press conference outside police headquarters, Kuvin said he was asked by police not to give out specific details of the alleged assault. His client, he said, gave a full statement to police.
Kuvin said Goins may be the only accuser within the statute of limitations to levy criminal and civil charges against Cosby.
“She is seeking justice under the criminal justice system, he said.
LAPD press information officer Drake Madison told PEOPLE the department does not comment on sexual assault cases. In the past, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck has said he is open to investigating any allegations that Cosby sexually assaulted women.
So far, more than 15 women have come forward claiming they were drugged and assaulted by the 77-year-old. The alleged attacks go back as far as the 1960s.
Goins is the second alleged victim to meet with the LAPD: Judy Huth accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her 40 years ago, also at the Playboy Mansion. However, Los Angeles prosecutors did not file charges against him in that case.
Cosby allegedly drugged Goins at the Playboy Mansion in 2008. She woke up in a bed naked, with Cosby licking her toes and masturbating, Kuvin said. When Cosby realized she was conscious, he quickly pulled his pants up and walked out of the room, according to a press release.
Goins alleges Cosby provided a drink to her earlier in the night, which was the last thing she remembered before she woke up naked and found Cosby on top of her.
“Chloe is very aware of her responsibility because so many other women are outside of the statute of limitation,” Kuvin said.
Kuvin said Goins decided to come forward because “there is power in numbers.”
“Especially if you are one person against a very powerful man,” he added.
Cosby’s attorney, Martin Singer, released a statement refuting Goins’s claims. “On Wednesday, Chloe Goins and her attorney publicly accused Bill Cosby of assaulting Ms. Goins in 2008 at the ‘Midsummer Night’s Party’ held at the Playboy Mansion in California. The party took place on August 9, 2008. Mr. Cosby was in New York on that date,” he said. “We will be providing documentary evidence to the appropriate authorities which conclusively establishes Mr. Cosby’s whereabouts on August 9th and for the preceding and succeeding days.”
Singer has previously blasted the wave of accusations against Cosby.
“These brand new claims about alleged decades-old events are becoming increasingly ridiculous,” he said in a statement Nov. 21.
