Heather Unruh, a former news anchor for Boston's WCVB-TV, has accused actor Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting her son at a restaurant in Nantucket in 2016.

"There was no consent. Kevin Spacey bought him drink after drink," Unruh said at a press conference. "When my son was drunk, Spacey made his move."

During the incident, Unruh said her son ran from the restaurant when Spacey went to the bathroom, at the advice of a "concerned woman." Her son has filed a report against Spacey.
