    A former Boston TV anchor who has publicly accused Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey of making sexual advances toward her teenage son at a Nantucket restaurant in 2016 said on "Megyn Kelly TODAY" on Monday there are witnesses and evidence to support her child's account.

    In her first live TV interview since coming forward with allegations that Spacey plied her son with alcohol before sticking his hand down her son's pants and grabbing her son's genitals, Heather Unruh said she's learned the actor's alleged actions are part of a pattern she's seen with other victims.

    "The majority of the people who have come forward to me have been straight men. One of them described Spacey as being on the hunt, that it was a hunt for him," she said.

    Unruh said her then-18-year-old son was excited to meet and have drinks with Spacey in a Nantucket bar after he was finished with his shift at The Club Car restaurant in 2016.

    [NECN] Kevin Spacey Accused of Sexually Assaulting Son of Former News Anchor

    Former Boston TV news anchor Heather Unruh says Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted her teenage son in 2016 on Nantucket.

    Spacey and her son had "talked for a long time, they sang together at the piano, and then out of nowhere, Kevin violated him. And not just once," she said.

    Although she would not go into details due to the ongoing investigation, Unruh said investigators have evidence and witnesses, adding she believes Spacey deserves jail time.

    "I think he's run out of using his celebrity," she said. "So I think we're not going to stop until he pleads guilty."

    Unruh also said it was "stunning" that rumors about Spacey's alleged predatory behaviors have been kept under wraps for so long, "because it was a well-known secret in Hollywood."

    Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O'Keefe told the Boston Globe his office is looking into the case.
