Spacey ultimately left to use the bathroom and the teen ran away at the urging of a nearby woman who could tell he was shaken, Unruh said. It's not clear why Unruh did not provide the name of her son during the press conference.

Former Boston news anchor Heather Unruh accused embattled actor Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting her son a year ago during a press conmference on Wednesday. Unruh first hinted at the accusation in a tweet that went viral after the first round of sexual-misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein. "I want to see Kevin Spacey see the hand of justice come down on him - not just for my son, but every victim who speaks the truth", Unruh told a packed press conference at the Hilton Hotel at Faneuil Hall accompanied by her teenage daughter and her son's attorney Mitchell Garabedian. "Shame on you for what you did to my son", said Unruh. Her son told Spacey he was 21, Unruh said. "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 to the Nantucket Police and now a criminal investigation has begun", she said.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Unruh tweeted on October 13 that Spacey, 58, had assaulted a "loved one". Actor Anthony Rapp, the first to come forward, claimed that Mr Spacey had made unwanted advances on him when Mr Rapp was 14.

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". I can assure you this is not the kind of attention anyone wants. Police are now conducting an investigation, she said.

With so many people wanting to go back to the series' boots on the ground roots, it's no wonder that Call of Duty: WWII has sold so well.

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

Spacey has said he was "beyond horrified" by Rapp's previous claim of assault.

"The #weinsteinscandal has emboldened me - #truth time".

As the allegations against Spacey continued to surface, Unruh has shown her support for Rapp and the other victims on Twitter. A publicist said last week that Spacey is "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment".

But fellow Conservative MP Anna Soubry described Johnson's remarks as "appalling", writing on Twitter that "in "normal" times" the Foreign Secretary would have been "sacked long ago".

Spacey has said he doesn't remember the encounter but apologized if such "drunken behavior" occurred.

In light of the allegations against him, several members of the "House of Cards" production team have come forward with their own harrowing experience with the show's lead actor.

A lawyer for Spacey didn't immediately return an email Wednesday.
