Longtime Boston television journalist Heather Unruh has accused Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting her son at a MA bar last summer.

Former Boston news anchor Heather Unruh sits with her attorney Mitchell Garabedian at a press conference in Boston November 8, 2017 during which she accused actor Kevin Spacey of allegedly sexually abusing her son in July 2016 at the Club Carr restaurant on Nantucket Island. 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.

Talese went on to make the shocking "suck it up" remark about the Hollywood star's alleged victims - some who claim to have been as young as 14-years-old when Spacey made sexual advances toward them. She told him to run, and he did.

A former Boston news anchor says her teenage son was allegedly sexually assaulted by Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey last summer.

"The sexual assaults, the sexual harassment, the sexual perversion must be stopped, and one way to stop it is for fearless victims and their families to speak out so that children are safe, other victims are empowered and the victims themselves are emboldened", Garabedian said.

It's true that there's great value in profiling complex and unethical people and-at their best-these profiles can encourage empathy (not always sympathy, mind you) and a better understanding of the capabilities and failings of the human character.

Journalist Mark Halperin is accused of sexually harassing five women
Halperin says he pursued relationships, sometimes with junior co-workers, but CNN says he denies the groping allegations. Halperin began working for ABC News in 1988 and was promoted to political director in 1997.

He said in a statement: 'But if I did behave as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior'.

Unruh said her son filed a police report last week with the Nantucket Police Department and that a criminal investigation is underway. "That was an appalling attempt to deflect attention away from what you really are: a sexual predator". "We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film Gore, which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey".

London authorities are also investigating claims of sexual assault involving the actor from 2008. "Time the dominoes fell", she wrote.

Even before those allegations surfaced, Unruh said in the midst of the Harvey Weinstein scandal last month that Spacey had assaulted someone close to her.

The two-time Emmy victor has not been arrested or charged with any crime.

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