The alleged assault took place in July 2016, said Unruh, who spoke during a press conference about the incident.

"I want to make it clear: This was a criminal act."

"It harmed him and it can not be undone", she said.

Unruh claims the assault happened at a bar in Nantucket and that Spacey "stuck his hand down my son's trousers and grabbed his genitals". She said a concerned woman noticed that her son was emotionally disturbed and urged him to "run". "He ran as fast as he could to his grandmother's house where, upset and afraid, he woke his (younger) sister and the two of them called me in the middle of the night".

She said the violation continued with Spacey insisting that her son join him at a private party.

"Right now, my son is anxious".

She said he had been "harmed" by the incident. "He did not report the crime at the time, and that was largely because of embarrassment and fear".

"He very much wanted my son to come forward and report it, but as I said ... with victims of assault, it's a very hard thing, "she said".

Spacey will be accused of abusing a victim on Nantucket Island, according to attorney Mitchell Garabedian who invited the media to attend an announcement in Boston, according to WCVB-TV, ABC 5.

Famed author and journalist Gay Talese has a message for all the alleged victims of actor Kevin Spacey's sexual misconduct: "Suck it up".




'This isn't a coming out story about Spacey, but a story of survivorship by Anthony Rapp & those who speak out about unwanted sexual advances, ' Ellis tweeted.

Unruh described her son at the time as a "star-struck, straight" 18-year-old. That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention from what you really are - a sexual predator. "Your actions are criminal". He had stared in the hit show "House of Cards" for several seasons.

He has been publicly accused of attempting to rape a 15-year-old boy in NY and of making advances on actor Anthony Rapp when he was 14 years old, 31 years ago.

Kevin Spacey attends the Build Series to discuss his new play "Clarence Darrow" on May 24, 2017 in NY.

"Whether he was over 21 or not, Kevin Spacey had no right to sexually assault him", she said.

Unruh recently tweeted about the allegations after the widespread accusations against prominent movie executive Harvey Weinstein.

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

She added, "Time the dominoes fell".

Mr Spacey and surrogates have not specifically addressed any other allegations since Mr Spacey responded to Mr Rapp's accusation.
