Original story

A British television star is accused of raping a 14-year-old boy.

The accusation comes while British authorities are investigating whether there was a cover up in the sexual assault case of TV icon, the late Sir Jimmy Savile.

The recent allegation claims that the 17-year-old actor, who has not been identified, raped the teenage boy at the Wimbledon theater in London in July 2010.

According to The Sun, the actor was further accused of “assault by beating” when he answered bail at a London police station.

In the Savile’s case, it is said that the host of the children’s program “Jim’ll Fix it” targeted boys and girls over a 20 year period.

The victims came forward with harrowing tales of sexual abuse of how they were abused by Savile, who died at the age of 84 in October 2011.

One victim, Kevin Cook, who appeared on “Jim’ll Fix It” as a Boy Scout at the age of 9, told how he was invited into Savile’s BBC dressing room after the show and how the entertainer undid his shorts and touched him inappropriately, only stopping when someone else suddenly entered the room.
