Latest Polanski Accuser: ‘I Was Raped Repeatedly’

In a new videotape, Edith Vogelhut graphically describes the alleged attack in 1974 — in the same house where Polanski raped Samantha Geimer

Edith Michelle Vogelhut has more to say to about being her claim of rape by Roman Polanski … and this time she's not holding back on the graphic details.

In a video interview with RadarOnline, Vogelhut — who says she plans to write a book about her days in the spotlight in the 1970s and devote a chapter to the Polanski incident — tells how she met the director at a party hosted by then Paramount executive Robert Evans and Warren Beatty back in November 1974.

She also lays out what she claims happened when they ended up afterward at Jack Nicholson’s Hollywood Hills home.

“I kind of knew that we were going to have sex, but I didn’t expect anything out of the ordinary,” Vogelhut claims in the video interview, “I did not expect to be sodomized.”

The former model, as TheWrap reported Monday, says she spoke to the Los Angeles district attorney’s office this spring about her claims that she was handcuffed, assaulted and repeatedly sodomized by Polanski in the mid-'70s. (Though the D.A.’s office declined to comment, a person close to the office’s Polanski file confirmed to TheWrap that investigators did speak to Vogelhut earlier this year.)

“He grabs me by the hair, jerks my head up, snaps amyl nitrate under my nose,” Vogelhut charges in the interview with Radar, “and enters me anally.”

“I hurt. This was rape. I was anally raped repeatedly.”

Vogelhut says she came forward with her charges after hearing the May 14 announcement by British actress Charlotte Lewis that Polanski assaulted her in his Paris apartment in 1982, when she was 16.

The house where Vogelhut says she was raped was the same Hollywood Hills home where Polanski drugged and raped 13-year-old Samantha Geimer in 1977. 

On July 12, the Swiss government turned down American efforts to extradite the 76-year old director who was under house arrest since December 2009, back to California to face justice for the 1977 rape. Roman Polanski was set free that morning and has reportedly started work on a new film.
