LAPD Investigates Nicole Eggert's Sexual Assault Allegations Against Scott Baio

Nicole Eggert filed a police report on Tuesday against Scott Baio, less than two weeks after her allegations that her former Charles in Charge co-star sexually abused her while they were on the show together, when she was underage.

The report follows what has essentially been a war of words between Eggert and Baio, conducted publicly on social media and on television talk shows, in which they have each challenged the other's account of events.

"We've been demanding since previous year that Nicole Eggert bring her story to the authorities".

"Ask Scott Baio what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor".

"Nicole answered all of their questions and told her story of sexual abuse by Scott Baio when she was a minor".

Nicole Eggert claims she came close to desperate measures during the years when co-star Scott Baio was allegedly abusing her.

Scott Baio has denied the allegations and states he is innocent.

Charles in Charge aired between 1984 and 1990. Earlier, Baio had urged her to present her claims to the proper authorities.

"Working on the set of "Charles in Charge" from age 11 to 15 was no picnic; it was a toxic environment", Polinsky said in a statement read by longtime friend and "Talk" host Sara Gilbert.

Baio has vehemently denied her accusations, insisting she was 18 - the legal age of consent in California - by the time the show wrapped.

A few days later, Baio appeared on "Good Morning America", and acknowledged that the pair did have sex, but that it was consensual.

We've also learned actor Alexander Polinsky, who played Adam Powell on the show, accompanied Eggert and told detectives he witnessed some of the alleged abuse. She continued to say that she was highly manipulated into doing whatever Baio requested. "I know you're telling the truth and I'm so glad to see you speaking out".

Nicole Eggert then corroborated Alexander's statement by giving a timeline of the abuse she endured as soon as she began working on the show.

He added, "The most important thing is that people are standing by her". It's good that she finally has, even if it's part of a publicity campaign. He claimed that she seduced him and it was so reasonable for him to behave the way he did. Her appearance on Dr. Oz had also been stalled while the producers vetted the allegations; her interview was initially filmed on January 10, but didn't air until after both Eggert and Baio went public with their claims.

Weintraub said the next step is for Eggert to fully cooperate with the investigation. "I didn't want anybody to look at me and think I was weak".
