On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that NYPD officials are investigating allegations that magician David Blaine sexually assaulted two women. At least one of the claims may fall outside the statute of limitations, however, as it's alleged to have occurred in 1998. Blaine's been accused of rape before: In 2004, model Natasha Prince accused Blaine of raping her in London, but Scotland Yard detectives declined to pursue the case after investigating her claim.
