Fox Anchor (And Son of NYC Police Commissioner) Greg Kelly Accused Of Rape

Greg Kelly, the host of the New York City morning show “Good Day New York” on Fox, is under investigation after a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her in October. The New York Times reports that the woman walked into a police station Tuesday night with her sister and reported the alleged incident. Because Kelly is the son of New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, The Manhattan District Attorney’s office is investigating the incident.

The New York Times Reports:

The woman told the police that she met the younger Mr. Kelly on the street and that the two went to South Street Seaport for drinks on Oct. 8. They then proceeded to her office at a Lower Manhattan law firm. The woman told the police that the rape occurred at the office. The two continued to have contact by phone and text message after the encounter.

According to the woman’s account, when her boyfriend later learned about the night, he became angry. He then approached the police commissioner at a public event and told him that the younger Mr. Kelly had sexually assaulted his girlfriend.

Kelly’s lawyer said in a statement: “Mr. Kelly strenuously denies any wrongdoing of any kind, and is cooperating fully with the district attorney’s investigation. We know the district attorney’s investigation will prove Mr. Kelly’s innocence.”
