SANTA MONICA, Calif. - Prosecutors in Los Angeles are reviewing a sex crime case against Sylvester Stallone brought to them by the Santa Monica Police Department on Wednesday, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office confirms to CBS News.

According to Lt. Saul Rodriquez, a spokesman for the Santa Monica Police, police received a complaint in November 2017 about an incident alleged to have taken place in the 1990s at an officer Stallone had in Santa Monica. They department investigated and turned their findings over to the Los Angeles County District Attorney.

Greg Risling, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office, told CBS News the case is being reviewed by the office's sex crimes task force.

He said the office isn't commenting further.

"My client categorically denies the allegations," Stallone's attorney, Martin Singer, told CNN. "It's outrageous that the DA's office and PD would announce this information because it makes the public think that there's something there."

Singer told the station that the woman who made the complaint had a consensual relationship with his client in the 1980s.
