During the incident, Unruh said her son ran from the restaurant when Spacey went to the bathroom, at the advice of a "concerned woman".

"My son is anxious, but he is also confident the time to act is now", she said. He knew the kind of attention that would result from making an accusation about such a public person.

Former WCVB-TV news anchor Heather Unruh said Wednesday that actor Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted her then 18-year-old son at a restaurant on Nantucket in July 2016. "Kevin Spacey bought him drink after drink", Unruh said at a press conference. Unruh's son reportedly told the actor he was over 21.

According to a Vanity Fair story published Tuesday, the 85-year-old writer told the publication he felt sad for Spacey, who is now embroiled in a sexual misconduct scandal. "There are a lot of people who hide behind keyboards and say really ugly things".

"Last week my son filed a police report and handed over evidence, and now a criminal investigation has begun", Unruh told reporters.

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.

Tara Miltimore, assistant district attorney and spokeswoman for the Cape and Islands District Attorney's Office, confirmed to ABC News that "an individual has provided information to the Nantucket Police regarding an allegation of an indecent assault and battery".

"The sexual assaults, the sexual harassment, the sexual perversion must be stopped", Garabedian said.

Seated to her right at the press briefing was attorney Mitchell Garabedian, who has years of experience having represented victims of sexual abuse by the Catholic Church.

The writer also compared Spacey to the Dalai Lama, who likely "has done something he's ashamed of".

"The #weinsteinscandal has emboldened me- #truth time", she tweeted.

The alleged victim also reported it to police by phone sometime this year, but it's unclear if police are investigating, TMZ reported.

She added, "Time the dominoes fell".

Since Rapp made his allegations, Spacey has been hit by at least 10 other claims.

Since then, other allegations have surfaced and the Oscar-winning star said he is seeking "evaluation and treatment".

"He's committed to doing what he can to stop Kevin Spacey from victimizing anyone else".

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.

Spacey apologized in an October 29 tweet - his last - but also said he had no memory of the alleged encounter.

"While we continue the ongoing investigation into the serious allegations concerning Kevin Spacey's behavior on the set of House of Cards, he has been suspended, effective immediately", the statement read.
