Actor Terry Crews named Hollywood agent Adam Venit as the man who sexually assaulted him in a candid GMA interview on Wednesday.

"He's connected to probably everyone I know in the business ... I did not know this man. I have never had a conversation with him, ever," Crews says. Yet, Crews explains, "Back in February 2016, I was assaulted by Adam Venit, who is head of the motion picture department at William Morris Endeavor, one of the biggest agencies in the world, period."
 
Crews, 49, says he had never felt more emasculated and more objectified. He had admitted on Twitter last month that he was groped last year at a "Hollywood function" by a "high-level Hollywood executive" during the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations. 
 
"People need to be held accountable," Crews states. "This is the deal about Hollywood. It is an abuse of power. This guy [...] he's one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, and he looked at me at the end as if, 'Who is going to believe you?"
 
Crews has since acted upon these claims and filed a police report on Nov. 8.
 
ABC NEWS reached out to William Morris Endeavor and the agency responded that Venit was "suspended following the internal investigation into the matter."
