Prosecutors in Los Angeles are reviewing a historical sexual assault accusation against actor Kevin Spacey, officials have confirmed.

The Oscar-winning actor may face prosecution in California over allegations of sexual assault against a man in 1992.

"A case was presented April 5 by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department", Los Angeles District Attorney spokesman Greg Risling said in an email to Reuters.

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department says it first opened the investigation last December, and kicked it up to the DA's office for review just a few days ago. TMZ believes that the case will ultimately be rejected because the allegations come from outside the statute of limitations.

In October, out actor Anthony Rapp (Star Trek: Discovery) accused Spacey (House of Cards) of sexual misconduct when the two actors were working on Broadway and Rapp was 14. Spacey also acknowledged for the first time publicly that he was gay.

Rapp said that, after a party in Spacey's NY apartment in 1986, Spacey picked him up, placed him on a bed, climbed on top of him and made a sexual advance. Another anonymous man told the BBC that after meeting Spacey as a teenager, the actor invited him to visit his home in New York City. Spacey responded with an apology of sorts, saying that he did not remember the encounter.
