Boston News Anchor Accuses Kevin Spacey of Sexually Abusing Her Son

Journalist says the famous actor plied her 18-year-old son with alcohol and groped him.

A former Boston-area news anchor is accusing actor Kevin Spacey of plying her 18-year-old son with alcohol, then grabbing his genitals after the two met in a Nantucket bar, according to the Boston Globe. When Spacey excused himself to go to the restroom, Heather Unruh told reporters, a woman encouraged her son to run. She says he did.

“It harmed him and it cannot be undone,” Unruh said on Wednesday, with her lawyer present. She called her son “a very strong young man. He does his best to deal with it, but it’s always there.”

Unruh went on to say that her son has since filed a report and provided police with evidence of the incident. The Globe reports that the Cape and Islands district attorney’s office confirmed a person complained to Nantucket police “about an allegation of an indecent assault and battery.”

“The individual is represented by an attorney,” spokesperson Tara L. Miltimore said to the Globe. “We are waiting to hear from him.”

Multiple men have recently come forward to allege that Spacey sexually harassed or assaulted them. Spacey’s agency and publicist have both recently dropped him, and Netflix has suspended filming of the sixth season of “House of Cards” and strongly hinted it will kill off Spacey’s “Frank Underwood” character.

Speaking directly to Spacey, Unruh said: “Shame on you for what you did to my son,” adding that she wants “to see Kevin Spacey go to jail.”
