The chief of the Los Angeles Police Department said that he expects an influx of even more reports of high-profile sex crimes as the department investigates more than two dozen allegations of sexual misconduct by Hollywood types.

“We anticipate the LAPD and other jurisdictions will receive even more high profile sex crime reports in the coming weeks and months,” LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said in an email to the Los Angeles Times.

“We encourage all victims of sexual assault to come forward to report these crimes,” Beck wrote.

The LAPD is investigating 28 cases of alleged sex crimes against those in the entertainment industry including disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, “Gossip Girl” star Ed Westwick, “Girls” writer and executive producer Murray Miller, and talent agent Tyler Grasham, according to the Times.

The police department has also taken 37 other sex crimes reports, which it sent to other law enforcement agencies.
