A former Boston-based news anchor came forward with allegations against Kevin Spacey Wednesday on behalf of her teenage son, claiming the embattled actor grabbed his genitals under the influence of alcohol.

After the Harvey Weinstein stories broke, Heather Unruh tweeted that Spacey “assaulted a loved one,” but it wasn’t until about a month later that she came forward with more details on the alleged incident, The Boston Globe reports.

“Shame on you for what you did to my son,” Unruh said, addressing Spacey in front of a group of reporters on Wednesday. “He does his best to deal with it, but it’s always there.”

Unruh’s son was 18 when Spacey allegedly assaulted the “starstruck” teenager at a restaurant in Nantucket, Massachusetts in July 2016. The former Channel 5 News anchor claimed that Spacey “supplied her son with alcohol before allegedly touching his genitals,” The Globe reports.

The alleged victim fled the scene after the incident, ran home and told his sister about what happened with the “House of Cards” star. Last week, Unruh’s son finally filed a police report, providing Nantucket authorities with evidence, according to The Globe.

“It harmed him and it cannot be undone,” Unruh continued, adding that she wants the “hand of justice” to come down and “see Kevin Spacey go to jail.”

Unruh also suggested that Spacey targeted “at least one other person” while visiting Nantucket.

The former tv anchor’s tweet may have been the first public accusation against Spacey, but now that more people have come forward with allegations against the actor, it seems to be carrying much more weight.
