Corey Feldman is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department for sexual assault, only months after he launched allegations of sexual abuse against other Hollywood stars.

Page Six reports the LAPD told them a female victim filed a report of sexual battery against The Goonies actor on January 8.

 "The incident occurred on February 4, 2017. [The] robbery/homicide division is handling the investigation," police said.

Feldman is "vehemently denying the egregious accusations," a spokesperson told the website.  

"It goes against everything he believes in and is fighting for - victim protection and stopping inappropriate behaviour towards both children and adults."

Feldman has been openly campaigning against Hollywood sexual abuse in recent months. He has crowdfunded a new movie that he says he hoped would expose sexual abusers of child performers in Hollywood. He also alleges he was molested as a boy while working on movies, along with his friend and co-star Corey Haim, who died in 2010.

During a Dr Oz appearance in November, he named 1980s movies co-star John Grissom as one of the perpetrators.

Feldman married his long-time girlfriend Courtney Anne in November.
