Heather Unruh, a former news anchor, alleges that House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted her son last year, the Boston Globe reports. The young man, then 18, met Spacey at a restaurant and was "starstruck," Unruh says. Spacey allegedly gave him alcohol and touched his genitals before excusing himself to the bathroom. A woman "urged the young man to run," while Spacey was absent, per the Globe.

Why it matters: Unruh said she filed charges with local law enforcement. This follows a series of 13 previous allegations against Spacey.
