A third woman has come forward accusing actor Ed Westwick of sexual assault, it follows the rape allegations made by two separate women last week both of which the Gossip Girl actor has denied.  

Rachel Eck, a 23-year old executive assistant at the time, alleges that the actor “pulled me onto the bed and aggressively groped me."

Speaking to Buzzfeed News, Eck explained that the incident took place the night before the Academy Awards in 2014 at a Los Angeles hotel room. Her former boyfriend, film producer Kaine Harling, invited her to come over and hang out.

Eck thought there may be a possibility that she and Harling could rekindle their relationship.

She claims Westwick asked her to invite a friend over and when she didn’t he “turned his sights on me.”

At the hotel, she says whenever Harling left her on her own with Westwick the actor would “try to kiss me or kind of push me up against the wall,” and when she tried to tell Harling about what was happening he simply dismissed Westwick’s actions.

“I have never felt so uncomfortable in a situation like that in my entire life,” Eck said.

According to Buzzfeed News, Westwick's representative did not comment on the new allegation.

Westwick has denied previous two allegations, calling them "two unverified and provably untrue social media claims."

Actress Kristina Cohen was the first woman to accuse Westwick of assault, posting on Facebook how she had been invited to Westwick’s house in 2014 by a producer she was dating when the actor raped her. 

She claims that Westwick “held me down and raped me.” While she does not name the producer she was dating in her Facebook post she later identified him to the Hollywood Reporter as Kaine Harling - the same person that introduced Eck to Westwick.  

Former actress Aurélie Wynn also accused Westwick of raping her in the same year as the other two victims. In a Facebook post, she wrote in her own: "I was wearing a one piece bathing suit that he ripped. I was in complete shock."

Both Cohen and Wynn’s allegations are being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department, Westwick says he is "cooperating with the authorities so they can clear my name".
