Former news anchor says Spacey assaulted her son

Heather Unruh, a former TV news anchor in Boston, said in a press conference Wednesday that the Oscar-winning actor assaulted her son, who was 18 at the time. Holding back tears, Unruh said in July 2016 that Spacey stuck his hand in her son’s pants and on his genitals at a bar in Nantucket, Mass.

She continued, saying Spacey urged her son to go to a private after party, but a concerned bystander asked her son if he was OK. When he relayed that he was not, Unruh said the woman told her son to run and he did.

"Nothing could’ve prepared my son for how that sexual assault would make him feel as a man," she said. "It harmed him and it cannot be undone."

Unruh appeared with attorney Mitchell Garabedian, who has represented victims of clergy sexual abuse, at the Hilton Hotel Downtown/Faneuil Hall.

Spacey's reps did not immediately return USA TODAY's request for comment.
