Unruh said an unknown woman noticed how shaken her son was, and encouraged him to run away.

Garabedian said Unruh's "brave" son, now a college sophomore, was 18 when the alleged assault occurred.

Former Boston TV news anchor Heather Unruh held a press conference Wednesday to recount her son's alleged sexual assault at the hands of Spacey.

Unruh recently tweeted about the allegations after the widespread accusations against prominent movie executive Harvey Weinstein. "Shame on you for what you did to my son", said Unruh.

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".

Gay Talese has a cold perspective about the multiple men who have accused Kevin Spacey of sexual harassment and assault. "There are a lot of people who hide behind keyboards and say really ugly things".

Unruh said her son filed a police report last week with the Nantucket Police Department and that a criminal investigation is underway. Nantucket Police Lieutenant Angus C. MacVicar couldn't confirm whether a sexual assault report was made, citing confidentiality under MA law. But ultimately the company chose to suspend production of the show's last season indefinitely.

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.

London police said have also said have begun investigating an alleged 2008 sexual assault reportedly linked to Spacey.

But Kang warned that "we need to be very careful about military options", adding that they "are there to give strength to diplomacy".

'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.

Kevin Spacey finally has someone sticking up for him in public, though the thoughts expressed by 85-year-old author Gay Talese aren't going over well.

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

Spacey issued a statement claiming he did not recall the incident, but he apologized for what he said would have been "deeply inappropriate drunken behavior".

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

Spacey responded to the allegations writing, "I honestly do not remember the encounter".

Production on House of Cards has been indefinitely suspended since October 31, and Netflix executives have decided the streaming network won't air new episodes if the actor remains involved in the series.

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