Scotland Yard is also investigating an alleged assault in Lambeth that dates back to 2008.

It's unclear if Scotland Yard's investigation relates to one of these complaints.

Kevin Spacey was artistic director between 2004 and 2015 at the Old Vic, which is based in Lambeth.

The claim was made on Friday and alleges an assault took place on a man in Lambeth in 2005.

The alleged victim came forward on Friday, more than two weeks after another male said he was assaulted by the same man in 2008.

He has not commented on the London allegations, and the Old Vic says he did not respond to a request to participate in its investigation.

A number of allegations against Spacey have surfaced since actor Anthony Rapp said he was the subject of an unwanted advance from the star when he was a teenager.

Cavazos alleged that Spacey approached him in "unpleasant encounters" which he said he would have termed "harassment" if he were a woman. The Old Vic said a "cult of personality" around Spacey had discouraged people from speaking out.

Kate Varah, the Old Vic's executive director, issued an apology on November 16 to the alleged victims.

The scandal has cost the embattled actor his role as controversial politician Frank Underwood on Netflix show House of Cards, and he has been edited out of Ridley Scott's new movie All the Money in the World. He has denied allegations of assault, but said he is now seeking "evaluation and treatment" of his behavior. "Spacey to feel free to touch us", Cavazos stated.

The man, who was a teenager at the time, said Spacey's behaviour during that weekend was "either very stupid or predatory - or maybe a little of both".
