Los Angeles : Nick Carter, the 38-year-old member of the Backstreet Boys, is investigated by LA County District Attorney’s Office in the alleged sexual assault case.

The Santa Monica Police Department brought the case forward on Tuesday, the LA district attorney’s office told Fox News. The probe into the charges against Carter follows up a police report filed in February, in an alleged sexual assault incident in 2003.

In February, American singer Melissa Schuman of the band Dream filed a police report accusing Carter of raping her in 2003. She took to her Twitter handle, saying, “I’m finally doing what I thought I could no longer do. Im filing a police report #timesup #bebrave #bethechange #metoo thank you @RAINN for empowering me to take this step.”
