US Mom Says Spacey Assaulted Son, Police Investigating

A former Boston TV news anchor is about to hold a news conference, pointing the finger at Kevin Spacey for allegedly sexually assaulting an 18-year-old family member.

Unruh said her son did not report the incident at the time "largely because of embarrassment and fear".

Heather Unruh tweeted last month - before the Spacey story broke - "The #weinsteinscandal has emboldened me - #truth time".

Representatives for Spacey did not immediately return PEOPLE's request for comment in regards to Unruh's allegations.

Unruh said her son was able to escape when Spacey got up for a moment to use the restroom. "Reports of sexual assaults are confidential under Massachusetts General Law", a spokesperson for the police department said. "And when my son was drunk, Spacey made his move and sexually assaulted him".

The firestorm started with the accusation of actor Anthony Rapp, who alleged that he was harassed by Spacey when he was only 14 while the actor was 26.


"He very much wanted my son to come forward and report it, but as I said ... with victims of assault, it's a very hard thing, "she said".

The press conference was announced in a press release from the office of lawyer Mitchell Garabedian, who has represented sexual abuse victims of Catholic priests. "So, OK, it happened 10 years ago", said Talese, who did not seem aware of the subsequent allegations by other young men accusing Spacey of sexual misconduct. "That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention away from what you really are: a sexual predator".

Spacey is most recently known for his role on the Netflix original series, House of Cards, garnering him with accolades such as a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor.

Garabedian, who is exploring taking civil action against the fallen A-list actor, said neither he nor Unruh reached out to the ousted "House of Cards" star's representatives before coming forward. "We will continue to work with [production company] MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show".

She also spoke directly to Spacey.

Assistant Cape and Islands District Attorney Tara L. Miltimore confirmed to the Herald that Spacey, 58, is under criminal investigation.
