Nantucket police said they couldn't confirm a report was filed because sexual assault reports are confidential.

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. She claimed the House of Cards actor bought her son "drink after drink" before allegedly reaching down the teen's trousers and grabbing his genitals, according to Buzzfeed News.

The alleged assault took place in July 2016, said Unruh, who spoke during a press conference about the incident. "There was no consent".

Unruh said Wednesday that she and her son went to Nantucket police last summer about the alleged incident.

Unruh said her son didn't report the assault at the time because he was embarrassed and knew it would bring a lot of attention.

She said during the press conference that her son filed a police report last week with the Nantucket Police. Her family was emboldened to come forward now that others have gone public with allegations of sexual misconduct against Spacey and other celebrities, she said.

The press conference came nearly a month after Unruh first tweeted that Spacey, 58, had assaulted a loved one of hers.

Because her son was afraid of shame and embarrassment, Unruh explained he chose to come forward now in wake of the stories that have been made public by other alleged victims.

"To Kevin Spacey I want to say this: Shame on you for what you did to my son and shame on you for using your apology to Anthony Rapp to come out as a gay man", said Unruh on Wednesday.

Since then, other allegations have surfaced and the Oscar-winning star said he is seeking "evaluation and treatment". Spacey, but your application to join the gay community at this time has been denied'.
