NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is investigating rape allegations against the son of Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. A woman has filed a complaint accusing TV news anchor Greg Kelly of sexual assault.

LISTEN: 1010 WINS’ John Montone reports

Sources told CBS 2’s Pablo Guzman on Thrusday that a woman came to the 13th Precinct with her sister Tuesday night to file the complaint. According to reports, she said she met Kelly, co-host of “Good Day New York” on Fox 5 TV, near the South Street Seaport in October.

It is alleged that they had drinks, then went to her law office, where she claims she was sexually assaulted.

Police spokesman Paul Browne said the police commissioner was recently made aware of an accusation against his son by the boyfriend of a woman.

“Commissioner Kelly was approached by an unknown individual at a public event who told him that his son had ‘ruined my girlfriends life,'” Browne said in an e-mailed statement to CBS 2. “Commissioner Kelly asked him to explain and the man said he didn’t want to discuss it there, so the commissioner told him to put it in writing and send it to him.”

The investigation was turned over to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance on Wednesday because of a potential conflict of interest — a decision Mayor Michael Bloomberg agreed with.

“In this case, I thought the Police Department did exactly what they should do. They right away turned over the investigation to the DA because you don’t want the appearance of a conflict of interest,” he said.

Vance and his team will be searching for witnesses an evidence to support the woman’s claims she was drunk.  They are already weeding through surveillance videos from a Seaport bar and her office.

For investigators, it may come down to this: was she so drunk, she was not capable of saying no? That would support a rape charge.

“These are the worst cases because the fact of the matter is that if he knowingly forced himself on somebody who is saying no even though she started down that road, it’s still rape,” said criminal lawyer Gerald Lefcourt.

To back a claim that she was quite drunk, Vance will have to get witnesses who saw them drinking near the Seaport. And investigators are already searching for videos of Kelly and the woman at or near a bar, walking to her office, inside her building, and especially what they were like when they left.

“In my opinion the prosecutors are looking for every single piece of evidence that corroborates her or corroborates him,” said Lefcourt.

The mayor said he and Kelly are approached often by the public and anybody with a complaint is asked to send it in. He insists all complaints are taken seriously.

In a statement, Greg Kelly’s lawyer, Andrew Lankler, said: “Greg Kelly is aware that the New York County District Attorney’s Office is conducting an investigation. Mr. Kelly strenuously denies any wrongdoing of any kind and is cooperating fully with district attorney’s investigation. We know that the district attorney’s investigation will prove Mr. Kelly’s innocence.”

Greg Kelly has not been charged and has stepped away from his duties at “Good Day New York” while the investigation continues.

    I’m very sad that this woman’s little baby was aborted, whomever the father was. Several adopted friends and acquaintances of mine discovered that they’d been conceived via rape and, while shocking for them, they were definitely grateful to have escaped abortion. If any of this tale is false, I sure hope it’s the abortion part…fr the sake of everyone involved. If this woman was raped, an abortion might only have compunded her misery, in part because after enduring one violent act (as victim/survivor), she then becomes complicit in a second violent act, this time as co-perpetrator. Not everyone will feel this way but many will, including a friend of mine who also found the emotional scars related to the abortion as vastly more deep and lasting than those from the rape. If Greg Kelly did have sex with this woman after just meeting her -even if truly consensual (in dispute of course) – then he’s a real cad and a disgrace to himself and his family and he’s going to have to expend an awful lot of effort to redeem himself. And if it was actually a rape, then he has done something despicable beyond belief and has an enormous amount of work and soul-searching to do to address the miserable mess left by his actions.

  2. Brother is a cop says:

    I know everyone blames the victim/messenger here just on superficial
    news report,it turns out now her Brother is also a Cop on the NYPD force
    Might not a naive woman who says she is raped by the Comm. son have
    a hesitation if not fear to report this possible crime?.
    Just asking as many think this college student is in it for the money but certainly
    this can’t be a easy for way for her to capitalize on Greg Kelly’s fame.
    Also why is Kelly going to bar as shown in the NY Daily news today with Bra;s
    hanging from the ceiling? This is for kids that are 21 yrs. old is he raiding the
    chicken coop so to say for his own desires? Bad judgment.

  3. Mr. S says:

    I think it went like this: Greg meets a (promiscuous) lady. They had a few drinks, went back to her office, had sex. She may have done this with some other men between Greg and becoming pregnant. Her (neutered)boyfriend finds out about it and she has an abortion. But whose baby is it? The woman and Greg exchange friendly emails and perhaps the intent was to blackmail the “high profile” guy. Greg refuses and they go public. The case is weak but embarassing for all concerned…watch what you’re doing Greg !!

  6. Janie says:

    Oh come on. This was a trap – she knew exactly who he is and invited him to her office. Total entrapment. She should be ashamed because she makes it hard for ‘real’ rape victims. You don’t just invite someone you just met somewhere private unless you know exactly what you’re going to do.

  8. DWM says:

    DID YOU SEE WHAT MAYOR BLOOMBERG HAD BEHIND HIM ON CHANNEL 2 NEWS AT 5? It in the video at the top of the page for all to see.

    Mayor Bloomberg spoke from a podium that was in front of a poster with the words , “Gossip Girl” repeated at least a dozen times. A key issue in the case is the credibility of the woman. So as the Mayor talked about the investigation, viewer saw

    “Gossip Girl” Gossip Girl” “Gossip Girl” Gossip Girl”” Gossip Girl” Gossip Girl” “Gossip Girl” “Gossip Girl” “Gossip Girl””Gossip Girl” “Gossip Girl” Gossip Girl.”

    The location for taping had to be made in advance. Someone decided to have the podium placed in front of it. There must have been a lot of video crew setting up their positions. Perhaps and sneaky plug by CBS for the show? Or someone wanted “Gossip Girl” to plant opinions in the viewers.

    The video segment is at the top of this site. “Sex Assault Investigation” on a red background. WATCH THE CLIP. SEE FOR YOURSELF. How could they not have noticed???

  9. petirene69 says:

    This man is one of the most cordial and polite people you can meet i have seen and spoke to him on several occassions in Midtown on the street, always on his phone, talking or texting but would always take the time to say hi to a fan, I do not believe the allegations, I think this is a woman scorned, who’s just trying to make something a strictly sexual relationship or encounter becuause now her boyfriend may have found out. She’s got a boyfriend NOW but was apparently sleeping with KELLY lets figure this out you get raped, you get pregnant, you have an abortion three months later you report it? really what more proof did she need? Honestly I think it’s bad on the part of the police department to even let hthis become public until there was MORE evidence to show cause. SAd, I wish you the best GREG i miss seeing your cute face on TV maaaaaaaaaaaaauh

  10. Mary Q. says:

    To those that blame the possible victim “Why did she wait so long
    to go to the police and emailed him “etc & etc. Just think if YOU WENT
    to the NYPD and said Hi! your Commander in Chief ‘s son just raped me
    and once made ,me pregnant .Who amongst us could be that unafraid.
    Not one of us was there on that law office couch . the truth will come out, I would think there is some strong evidence.
    Many woman have relationships with their rapists
    as they are afraid of being murdered more cruel than rape ,yes/no?.
    Just to try to keep things in perspective as this woman is being raped
    again in the press. Let’s wait to see if Greg Kelly gets arrested as most
    accused do as a formality. Funny how our cops dropped this like a hot
    potato ,should be someone in the department that could investigate this

  11. blahblahblah says:

    and furthermore, if she was so ‘distraught’ and it went down like the complaint said, how did they end up exchanging phone numbers so that they could continue texting for a few more months? was it for $$??

  12. Deborah Jeffries says:

    They had sex and the BF caught her end of story. BTW lee your post is scary and classic symptoms of paranoid schizophrenia. Hope you get help for it mate.

    1. Rodin says:

      That goes double for me. Maybe she/he is a distraught former follower of Michele Backman’s or Rick Perry’s Christian Crusades or most probably of Peter “Sharia” King.

  13. flea says:

    Just another Ted Baxter. Without the teleprompter, he couldn’t find his way home.

  14. lee says:

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    How is it that 12 of the 9/11 terrorists could live for 2 weeks just 2 miles from NSA head quarters in Maryland.This after several of them had taken flight simulator lessons on Jumbo jet trainers and several of them where on State department terror watch lists.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    If DoJ and DoD employees where more concerned with doing their jobs than enriching themselves by stealing from suspects and taking bribes, then there might have been more a chance that 9/11 had never happened.
    Worse might be the fact that elements within the U.S. Intellignece agencies with intent create their own terrorists by carefully choosing suspects and through many 10’s of years of psycological and physical abuse create their own terrorists. Why, to prop up defense spending.
    My dog was poisoned to death, a stolen car was run into the front of my house, gang members are harrassing me, I get death threats, BB guns are being shot at my car when I drive, my car is being tampered with, money and jewelry has been stolen out of my house, very long term sleep deprivation, etc….
    They have been harrassing me for 20 years.

  15. KIM says:

    no way did Greg rape anyone…she invited him to her office…i think her bf found out and now shes screaming Rape out of fear of her very angry bf…I 100% SUPPORT GREG!!!

  16. Dr.Doctor what's wrong with me says:

    UMMMMMMM! Somehow a law office for sex does not sound sexy or romantic
    Fox 5 give Greg a raise ,then he can go to a hotel with young woman.
    No as they say”You can’t write stuff like this”…

  17. blahblahblah says:

    How did she know the baby was his? Maybe it was her angry boyfriends? Did she have them tested? Sounds like she and boyfriend didn’t get what she wanted out of the ‘relationship’

  18. Mayor Koch's dental bridge says:

    I guess I am the only one in NYC that thinks the trouble started with
    this hi profile guy going after her ,half his age and then to her place
    of work at a law office at that.
    Zipper fever will get you into trouble ,She is half his age has evidence
    more that likely a reprt that she aborted his baby and CCTV camera more
    that likely at that office,plus texts. Whatever!

    1. Rodin says:

      Think you can write something that makes sense?

    2. Hank says:

      She is NOT half his age. Him=43 Her=30
      Learn some math!

      1. Mayor Koch;s dental bridge says:

        She is 27 years old Ok thats still young with a 43 years old man but having sex with this dude is OK with you in an attorney’s office and being a TV celebrity ??

      2. Rodin says:

        I was twice my wife’s age when I was 30 and she was 15. We met when she was 19 and I 34 AND HAD SEX!!! It’s now 32 years later. Still together and very much enjoying MARRIED life. Time has the property of erasing differences.


        … and I’m sure this is some dumb gold-digger egged on by a manipulative, crafty boyfriend. No problem until they found out who Kelly Jr. was. “‘Ruined my girlfriends life,” my arse!

  19. Deborah Jeffries says:

    C’mon this chick’s story is obviously fabricated. If you’re raped you have torn clothing, bruising, evidence of force and you scream and run for the closest policeman or woman and report it, not almost three months later. Sounds like an extortion plot and I bet the DA will drop the case.

    1. BF caught her says:

      Yes and when your raped why would you still be texting and calling the guy the next 2 and half months .Sounds like bf found her phone and read text.

  20. Karen says:

    Gimmie a break!!! Why did the girl wait soooooo long to go to the police ????? If this was a normal girl she would have gone to the hospital and called the police right away!!! Guess she just wants her 15 minutes of fame…

  21. lulu says:

    Coming soon , You will be able to pick a drone at most electronics store to keep an eye on your kids. model sized helicopter with a camera used to film videos from above. stay tuned

    1. Rodin says:

      Stay on topic. Can yah?

  22. mike says:

    I really enjoy Greg & Rossana on Good Day NY, This whole thing sounds pretty fishy ?, If he is guilty , than he should be punished, but if he is Cleared it most likely will destroy his carrer, that would be awful, he flew jets for the Marines in combat, worked his way up in the TV business , but is an easy mark because his job & the fact his Dad is the POLICE COMMISSIONER, why else is this being reported like hes a serial killer !!!

  23. MiMi says:

    Seems aptly timed to coincide with the request for Comissioner Kelly to resign from the NYPD by the irritated CAIR Group, (investigated for terrorism) who are annoyed that a radical muslim film was viewed by NYPD members. Kelly was supposedly a consultant on this film…

    Just seems a bit fishy. The accusation is as lame as they come.

  24. rodin says:

    Clearly the boyfriend’s idea. Jealousy, vindictiveness, greed?

    1. Free Greg says:

      I agree she is a lawyer 3 months to wait something wrong .And then all the tesxt and calls back and forth for 3 months.I think the text will clear him and I hope if he did not do it she will be disbarred

      1. Major Houlihan says:

        Have read in the Ny Post that she is a paralegal, and that this encounter supposedly resulted in a pregnancy that she aborted. Unbelievable. Literally.

        How do you come out after 3 months and decide that this is a rape?

        How does your boyfriend have the nerve to say that Greg Kelly ruined his girlfirend’s life?

        Lots of texting and lots of calls.
        This will make or beak the case.

        Meanwhile there is no consequence to her, for false accusation, should her claims be unfounded.
        But his pic is everywhere now, and his image is tarnished.

        She remains the victim. Even if she is proven to be a liar.


  25. Rob says:

    Let the investigators do their job. Sit tight and wait. Why?

    Remember IMF Chief DSK vs. Hotel maid

    Remember former ABC Meteorologist Heidi Jones vs. NYPD

    Remember the Kennedy sex scandals. Due diligence….Investigate.

  26. Revised says:

    If your girlfriend is in the habit of having sexual afffairs with men she just met, at her business office no less, then you sir, need to find a new girlfriend. Let’s not even mention the fact that your so called girlfriend, is using you, just as she is going to use the justice (or injustice is the accurate term) system to try and get what she wants.

  27. lieutenantdan says:

    Times reports that the woman works at a law firm and had taken him at night to the offices of the firm.
    She did not file a report for 3 months later?
    What is up with that?
    I am sure that their were security cameras and maybe even a guard.
    She new what she was doing.
    Sounds like bi-polar and alcohol do not mix very well.

  28. Deborah Jeffries says:

    The problem that I have with this woman is she’s allegedly raped in October and reports it to police at the tail end of January. Any forensic evidence would be gone by now. Just like that maid who continued cleaning rooms after an alleged rape from the IMF head. This makes it hard for real rape victims. You don’t wait, you report it at that time.

  29. Mr Rite Aid says:

    His first mistake as a performer and son of our police commissioner
    was to go at night to this young ladies office. Stop blaming the female
    she is almost half his age.
    In anyway I bet she has some evidence but it
    also could be “he said she said “and if there was hanky panky it could have
    been agreed by both parties that it was OK to drop the pants.
    A man of Greg Kelly’s fame should not have let himself in that door and a law
    office at that ,it sounds like a bad Jay Leno joke.

  30. lieutenantdan says:

    We do know that women are constantly falsely accusing men of wrong doing.
    Many Fathers are accused of domestic violence and even rape by their wife.
    Women use this as a tactic when wanting to divorce their husbands to have their husbands removed from the marital residence and to never be let back in.
    The Father is proven innocent but the the wife is never brought up on charges for filing a false police report. The VAWA is being abused constantly by many women (not all). The courts are aware of this but do little to penalize the her for wrong doing. Taking advantage of a system set up to help those in true need of help is Sociopathic and cruel. I do not know the specifices on this story other than what I have read but it looks as if it is a he said, she said thing so far.
    It does not surprise me that alcohol is involved. This should be a good one since he is Kelly’s son. PEACE.

    1. Susan says:

      In divorce court they call this “The Sulver Bullet”. That is to say, making false accusations against the spouse (man) to get him out of the house and away from his children. It has been going on for years and hundreds of thousands of men have suffered unjustly becuase of it. The police, courts and chid supoort agencies (a multi billion dollar business, COUld not be happier. God Bless America, what’s left of it.

  31. Ligzie says:

    I don’t know but he does come off a little sexually frustrated.

    1. CT Native says:

      And you think this because………?

  32. justpassinthru says:

    so ‘she said, he said’ but both were foolish Why did she keep in contact w/Kelly? Why was the boyfriend the one to report it? Kelly should have known he would be recognized as a news anchor and changed his ways to account for that, (perhaps stop picking up women on the street.) Don’t know if he is actually guilty but what does this mean in terms of his co-anchor job at Good Day? Fox invested a lot in advertising on Rosanna/Greg, will they back him or will they drop him?

  33. Rodin says:

    Would have loved to be the proverbial “fly on the wall” when this father and son conversation was being had!

  34. CT Native says:

    If he’s guilty, put him away. If she’s lying, put her away!

  35. Liberals Are Evil says:

    The puta is looking for cash!!!

  36. bosco66 says:

    RAPE or $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$???

  37. Dr.Freud says:


    I think you are a little too concerned over the months about that
    part of the human anatomy ,you always bring up as they say
    the “Maid protests too much”. If you are not as stupid as you appear
    that means ,you really are wishing that that part of the anatomy was
    violated on yourself. Time for an counseling appointment .

  38. Vik says:

    I could think of a lot of public figures who’d be full of b.s. but not Greg Kelly. This hoe-down invited him back to her office, got leid and either he had to leave and she didn’t like it and is now looking for a pay out. He’s innocent and I hope the D.A. doesn’t drag out some over-zealous rape nonsense. Leave this one alone. Better yet — and then send the bimbo to the Jersey Shore.

  39. Kris says:

    One of them is telling the truth, one of them is lying. Nobody but those two know what happened. And that includes all the windbags here making comments as if they were there and they know. Seriously, people, get a job.

  40. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx says:

    I bet his father is proud .

    1. MaryANN says:

      That’s my son.

  41. royallen says:

    This guys a putz,but he is considered innocent until proven guilty,and at this point he hasn’t been charged with anythiing. Not to mention how fishy the womens story is………………………ms lawyer

  42. Scott says:

    Why is this man’s picture, name, credentials and so forth splashed all over the news while the women (and I use that term with hesitation) who is accusing him is unknown. Anybody can accuse anbody of anything. the problem here is that even if he is innnocent, which is likley, she has alreeady done damage to him by making such an accusation. This can happen to any of us and IT IS WRONG. This has to change in this country.

    1. Sarabella says:

      Scott, you’re so right. He can be totally and completely innocent – nothing has been proven and his reputation is being dragged through the mud. Completely unfair.

  43. Peter says:

    Why did she take Kelly to her law office to show him some law books ? get real!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. mr. farkas says:

    i always though this guy was batting for the other team.
    he is a no talent and i wonder how he got the job.

  45. Rockets Redglare says:

    More BULLSH!T to make a working, patriotic man look evil……

  46. Frank Rizzo says:

    ^yeah, what he said^ ……….


  47. Did it really happen says:

    This looks like she was caught by boyfriend and made up story of rape.The boyfriend was the one who reported it.She is just trying to save her relationship because who meets a guy on the street goes has drinks with him then invites him back to office.HMMM sounds like boyfriend found out and she cried rape.

  48. royallen says:

    I always wondered how this looser ,got a news anchor job,now I know how…his daddy is the Police Commisioner…………………………!

    1. rayallen says:

      Wow your so wrong on this one.Former marine and all around good guy I would just wonder why her boyfriend was one to report it sounds like she was caught with the skirt down.

      1. Peter says:

        A former Fighter Pilot to F-16!!!

    2. Anth710 says:

      He was actually a White House Correspondent for several years, along with reporting from the battle fields. THAT is how he got the news anchor job. Just because someone has a parent in a position of power, doesn’t mean they don’t have their own skills. Do your research.

  49. Frank says:

    He said, she said.

    Either way, the sex probably wasn’t pleasurable for at least one of them.

  50. OWS says:


    1. DD says:

      Is it not a possibility that he DIDN’T do it? You have no clue. He is a well-known news journalist…this lady could be after his money and her 15 minutes…why assume he is guilty because of his father. Go occupy your cesspool.
