US Mom Says Spacey Assaulted Son, Police Investigating

Nantucket Police Lieutenant Angus C. MacVicar couldn't confirm whether a sexual assault report was made, citing confidentiality under MA law.
According to Unruh's account, her son escaped Spacey's advances after the actor got up to use the restroom. But that isn't why Talese wants to profile Spacey, who is now facing mounting sexual harassment allegations from various men claiming that they were sexually harassed by the actor, some when they were as young as 14.
Spacey ultimately left to use the bathroom and the teen ran away at the urging of a nearby woman who could tell he was shaken, Unruh said.
The former anchor said her son was not of legal age to drink, though he told Spacey that he was, and she says nor did he give the actor consent for what happened afterward. She said Spacey sexually assaulted her son in 2016 when he was 18 years old.
The press conference came nearly a month after Unruh first tweeted that Spacey, 58, had assaulted a loved one of hers. "Thanks to the courageous women who have come forward with their accusations against Harvey Weinstein and other sexual abusers". That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention from what you really are: a sexual predator.
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. At the end of the night, an inebriated Spacey picked him up, placed him on his bed and climbed on top of him, Rapp said. "Time the dominoes fell", she tweeted on October 13, in a missive that has accumulated 3,800 retweets and more than 4,700 likes. Garabedian said he is conducting his own investigation.

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.
"Nothing could have prepared my son for the way that would make him feel as a man", Unruh told reporters.
Spacey has said he doesn't remember the encounter but apologized if such "drunken behavior" occurred. A publicist said last week that Spacey is "taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment". Netflix says the now filming sixth season will be the last. "Spacey absolutely denies the allegations".
The writer also compared Spacey to the Dalai Lama, who likely "has done something he's ashamed of".
Spacey has not issued a response to any of the allegations beyond Rapp.
In response, the Los Gatos-based streaming service cut ties with Spacey, who starred in and executive produced the show for six seasons.
