British police are investigating three new allegations of sexual assault against Kevin Spacey, bringing the total number of Spacey-related investigations under way at Scotland Yard to six. The new investigations are examining claims by three men who say that the disgraced "House of Cards" actor made unwanted sexual advances on them.

Police in Britain don't name suspects until it formally charges them. A police statement Wednesday said simply that the police force is investigating five allegations of assault and one of assault against a man.

Two of the new alleged assaults took place in London between 1996 and 2008, and the third in Gloucester in 2013. All three men filing the charges did so between February and April of this year.

The six charges Spacey now faces in the U.K. are in addition to an ongoing investigation against Spacey in Massachusetts and other separate allegations undergoing review at Los Angeles' District Attorney's Office. Spacey also accusations of inappropriate touching from the Old Vic Theatre in London, which said it has 20 anonymous complaints about him from former actors; and fellow actor Guy Pearce, who co-starred with Spacey in 1997 film "LA Confidential." Pearce said in an interview Tuesday that Spacey was so "handsy" that it was difficult to work with him.

"Tough one to talk about at the moment," Pearce said. "Amazing actor. Incredible actor. Mmm, slightly difficult time with Kevin, yeah. He's a handsy guy."

The allegations caused House of Cards to remove Spacey from the cast for its upcoming final season. Also, Sir Ridley Scott erased Spacey from his now-completed film All the Money in the World.
