Heather Unruh, a former Channel 5 anchor in Boston, claims Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son last year in Nantucket.
Unruh’s son, who was 18 at the time, allegedly met Spacey in July 2016 at the Club Car restaurant, where she says the “House of Cards” actor “plied her son with alcohol before allegedly touching his genitals,” according to the Boston Globe.
She says a woman told her son to run out of the restaurant when Spacey left to use the restroom.
“Shame on you for what you did to my son,” she reportedly said, addressing Spacey, 58, during a press conference in Boston on Wednesday.
Although she had spoken out about the assault to the Globe in October, this is the first time she’s admitted the alleged victim is her son.
Unruh said her son filed a report last week with Nantucket police, but a spokesperson told the Globe they couldn’t “confirm nor deny any such report was filed. Reports of sexual assaults are confidential under Mass. General Law.”
Unruh spoke out about Spacey on Twitter even before actor Anthony Rapp accused him of making sexual advances toward him when Rapp was just 14 years old.
On Oct. 13, she tweeted, “The #weinsteinscandal has emboldened me– #truth time. I was a Kevin Spacey fan until he assaulted a loved one. Time the dominoes fell.”
Two weeks later, she praised Rapp for speaking out: “I applaud your courage Actor Anthony Rapp @albinokid. You are not alone.”
Spacey has since been dropped by his agent and publicist and Netflix has cut all ties with the actor, canceling “House of Cards.”
Spacey’s lawyer did not immediately return our request for comment.
