Greg Kelly, 43, was absent Thursday morning from his job as anchor of “Good Day New York” and through a lawyer denied the allegations.
The woman said she had drinks with him on Oct. 8, then went back to her office, where she was assaulted, the person familiar with the case told the Associated Press.
A law enforcement official says the woman told authorities she got pregnant and had an abortion.
She went to police Tuesday, according to the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and did so on the condition of anonymity. It’s not clear why she went to police weeks later or how long they knew each other before the encounter, though she said they had met on the street at some point.
Police spoke to the woman but turned the case quickly over to the Manhattan district attorney’s office because of the potential conflict of interest in investigating the son of Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, the person said.
Greg Kelly, a former Fox News correspondent, is cooperating with the investigation, his lawyer said in an emailed statement.
