Terry Crews Details Alleged Sexual Assault Incident By Hollywood Agent (VIDEO)
Terry Crews has gone to the police to report his alleged sexual assault incident, and now he's gone to the press.
The actor revealed last month he had been assaulted at a Hollywood party by a male agent, and later filed a police report about the incident.
Now, Terry is detailing the specifics of the ordeal — and calling out his molester by name.
The 49-year-old first shared his story in response to the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandals, tweeting that he had been groped at a party which he attended with his wife, Rebecca King-Crews.
My wife n I were at a Hollywood function last year n a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates. (2/cont.)terrycrews (@terrycrews) October 10, 2017

Now the culprit is being called out by name.
In a sit-down with Good Morning America's Michael Strahan that aired today, November 15, Terry says Adam Venit, head of the motion picture department at WNE who's also Eddie Murphy, Sylvester Stallone and Adam Sandler's agent, was the one who groped him back in February of 2016.
“He’s connected to probably everyone I know in the business,” he says.
“I did not know this man. I have never had a conversation with him, ever. I knew of him … The first time I ever had an interaction with him was at this event.”
He continues, “I’m looking at him and he’s basically staring at me and he’s sticking his tongue out. Just overtly sexual kind of tongue moves. It’s a party, it’s packed, the whole thing.
"And I’m looking like, ‘Is this a joke? I don’t understand.’ It was actually so bizarre. And he keeps coming over to me. I stick my hand out and he literally takes his hand and puts it, squeezes my genitals. And I jump back like, ‘Hey, hey!’ … I go, ‘Dude, what are you doing?'”
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star even admits it happened more than once.
“And then he comes back again and he just won’t stop. And then I really got forceful, pushed him back, he bumps into all the other partygoers and he starts giggling and laughing.
He adds, “I have never felt more emasculated, more objectified. I was horrified. I went over to Adam [Sandler] right then and there and said, ‘Man, come get your boy. What is his problem?'”
Terry concludes by saying he came forward to set an example for his five children — one son and four daughters.
“What kind of man would I be to tell my kids, ‘If someone touches you where you don’t want to, tell someone’ if I’m not doing it myself?”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adam Venit is on leave from his job amid the sexual assault allegations.
Meanwhile, the LAPD is looking into the incident ever since Terry filed a police report earlier this month.
