We're told Melissa Schuman -- a singer from the girl group, Dream -- filed a report alleging sexual assault Wednesday with the Santa Monica Police Department. Law enforcement sources tell us the report will be handed off to the LAPD's Special Crimes unit -- a unit established after the Weinstein[2] allegations.
