The woman who accused New York police commissioner Ray Kelly’s son Greg of raping her last October said she got pregnant from the attack and subsequently aborted the baby, police sources say.
She officially filed a complaint yesterday against the younger Mr Kelly, who also hosts a popular regional morning show called Good Day New York.
The Manhattan district attorney is investigating the serious allegations, as an NYPD probe could be seen as a conflict of interest.
The popular TV anchor ‘strenuously denied’ all charges.

The son of New York police commissioner Ray Kelly did not appear on his regional morning show today.
His co-host Rosanna Scotto offered support for him, saying today: ‘I love Greg. That’s all I can say.’
The alleged sexual assault took place in October, but the woman involved did not report her accusation until this week.
A friend of the alleged victim’s boyfriend told ABC News that the woman had been ‘an emotional cripple’ since the alleged incident.
The friend said her boyfriend was outraged over the alleged attack. ‘He went and picked her up from the office where she was distraught, and he said later that the rape had taken place there,’ the friend told ABC News.

The woman, who is around 30, told police that she and Mr Kelly met on the street and went for drinks at the South Street Seaport on the evening of October 8, according to the New York Times.
They went to her office at a law firm in downtown Manhattan, where the assault allegedly happened.
She says that when her boyfriend found out about the encounter, he confronted the older Mr Kelly at a public event, saying: 'Your son ruined my girlfriend's life,' according to NYPD spokesman Paul Browne.
The commissioner told him to write a letter detailing the allegations, as he reportedly didn’t want to discuss it in public.
His lawyer added: 'We know that the District Attorney's investigation will prove Mr. Kelly's innocence.’
