The Two and a Half Men actor hit headlines last month (Oct10) over reports he ransacked his suite during a night of passion with Capri Anderson, who spoke publicly about the incident for the first time in a U.S. TV interview on Monday.

Appearing on Good Morning America, the 22 year old became tearful as she described the events that led her to lock herself in a bathroom in Sheen's hotel room, which was found trashed when police arrived at the scene.

Anderson accused the actor of screaming insults at her, throwing a lamp, grabbing her by the throat and threatening her with a shiny object she suspects was a knife.

She said: "I saw him pick something up. I'm not sure if it was an envelope opener, maybe - a knife. I wasn't at that point paying so much attention as much as I was trying to (get to the bathroom)."

Anderson's attorney also confirmed his client plans to file a criminal report with New York police, alleging battery and false imprisonment.

He added: "She (is) going (to) police today. She's filing a police report against Mr. Sheen today - a criminal report. She's going to the NYPD (New York Police Department) to report the action."

During the interview, Anderson also denied allegations she was to be paid for sex, insisting she had only been hired to escort Sheen to dinner earlier that night.

And she claims Sheen has been in touch since the alleged incident to offer her a financial settlement: "He offered me a sum of money for my silence... He apologised for his behaviour and the entire evening."

Sheen, who was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital for a psychiatric evaluation after the incident, has denied the allegations, and his lawyers have vowed to "vigorously" defend any legal action resulting from Anderson's claims.
