Terry Crews says he is also planning a lawsuit.

US actor Terry Crews has filed a police report after saying he was sexually assaulted by a high-level Hollywood executive.

Los Angeles police officer Sal Ramirez said Crews had filed a report on Wednesday (Thursday NZ Time), though Ramirez would not give the subject of the report.

But Crews confirmed for a TMZ cameraman as he walked out of the LAPD Hollywood station that it was about the groping he described last month, and said he also planned a lawsuit.

Crews said hearing reports of dozens of allegations against Harvey Weinstein brought back his own trauma and encouraged him to speak out.

He said he was at a Hollywood function last year with his wife when the male executive, who he has not identified, "groped my privates".

A representative for Crews did not respond to an email seeking comment.

Crews stars in police sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
