Hermoso accuses Rubiales of grabbing and kissing her during the World Cup trophy ceremony without consent.
Spain’s High Court prosecutor initiated a preliminary investigation into Rubiales for possible sexual aggression.
Hermoso reported the case to the attorney general’s office, allowing authorities to proceed with the investigation.
The Spanish National High Court is likely to handle the case as it involves a Spanish citizen in a foreign country.
Rubiales faced criticism and calls for resignation, but he denied wrongdoing and blamed "fake feminism" and the press.
The Spanish women’s soccer team refused to play for the national team until there was a change in federation management.
National coach Jorge Vilda was fired, and Rubiales was provisionally suspended by FIFA.
