Controversial film director Roman Polanski faces new child rape allegations after 61-year-old woman comes forward as victim, police confirm

POLICE are investigating a new child rape allegation against film director Roman Polanski.

German-born former actress Renate Langer, 61, claims he attacked her in 1972 when she was 15.

 84-year-old Roman Polanski is married with two children

She told police in Switzerland the assault took place at Polanski’s then-home in Gstaad.

Polanski admitted having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977 but fled the US before he could be sentenced.

The married dad-of-two, 84, now lives in Paris, as France does not have an extradition treaty with America.

Two other women have also accused Polanski of sexual assault, which he has denied.
