MANHATTAN — Greg Kelly, a local news anchor and the son of Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, is being investigated for allegedly raping a woman.
Law enforcement sources told DNAinfo the alleged victim walked into the NYPD's 13th Precinct on Tuesday and told police Kelly, the co-host of Fox 5's "Good Day New York," attacked her.
Detectives interviewed her, but then passed the case to the District Attorney's office because of the potential conflict of interest of investigating the police commissioner's son.
Kelly, 43, allegedly raped the woman after the two met on the street on Oct. 8 and had drinks at the South Street Seaport, The New York Times reported.
Kelly and the alleged victim, who is in her 20s or early 30s, then went to the woman's office at a Lower Manhattan law firm, where the supposed attack occurred.
Greg Kelly denied the rape claim through his attorney.
"Mr. Kelly is aware that the New York County District Attorney's office is conducting an investigation," said Andrew M. Lankler.
"Mr. Kelly strenuously denies any wrongdoing of any kind, and is cooperating fully with the District Attorney's investigation. We know that the District Attorney's investigation will prove Mr. Kelly's innocence."
The alleged victim told investigators that her boyfriend became enraged when she told him about the alleged attack. He confronted the police commissioner at a public event and told him about supposed rape.
Ray Kelly told him to write a letter, the woman told investigators, according to the Times.
ABC News reported that the woman is an "emotional cripple" and "distraught."
The NYPD referred all calls to the district attorney's office Thursday morning. A spokesperson for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., declined comment.
The rape allegations against Kelly's son comes as the police commissioner is embroiled in a controversy about his appearance on an anti-Muslim film that was shown to nearly 1,500 police recruits.
