Days before the statute of limitations is set to run out, an arrest warrant has been issued for Bill Cosby on a charge of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple employee Andrea Constand in 2004, according to PEOPLE magazine.

The statute of limitations to charge the entertainer in the case expires in January, notes the report. The incident reportedly occurred at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania mansion in January 2004, sources tell the magazine.

Constand was not available for comment but one of her attorneys expressed gratitude toward the prosecutor.

“Obviously we appreciate the expression of confidence in her,” says Dolores Troiani of her client, Constand, 42, who is now a massage therapist in Ontario, Canada. “We’ll have to see what happens. We hope justice will be done. We will cooperate fully.”

Cosby has previously said what happened between him and Constand was consensual, but in new court filings last summer Constand said she was in a relationship with a woman at the time. She also called Cosby a “narcissist” who missed cues that she’s gay.

An estimated 50 women have accused the entertainer of drugging and/or sexually assaulting them. Cosby has adamantly denied all of the allegations.
