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 said Spacey invited her son to a party before briefly stepping away to use the bathroom.
Unruh said her son told Spacey that he was of the legal drinking age.
While she did not say how exactly Spacey assaulted her son, Unruh did previously share the news on Twitter, sharing a photo of Spacey and writing: "The #weinsteinscandal has emboldened me - #truth time".
A lawyer for Spacey didn't immediately return an email Wednesday. Unruh said she chose to speak out after the Harvey Weinstein scandal came to light, with multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, harassment and assault surfacing in bombshell reports by The New York Times and The New Yorker.
Unruh said that last week, her son filed a police report and handed over evidence to the Nantucket police.
"An individual has provided information to the Nantucket Police regarding an allegation of an indecent assault and battery", Miltimore said in a statement.

"The victim - my son - was a starstruck, straight 18-year-old young man who had no idea that the famous actor was an alleged sexual predator or that he was about to become his next victim", Unruh said. "But he's also confident that the time to act is now", she said.
Joining Unruh at the press conference was her son's attorney, Mitchell Garabedian, who represented numerous victims in the Boston clergy sex abuse scandal.
"She saw that my son was shaken", Unruh said of the woman. "I want to see Kevin Spacey have the hand of justice come down on him".
Spacey, 58, has faced several accusations of sexual misconduct in recent weeks. He has tried his best to deal with it. "No other information will be available at this time".
Shortly after Rapp's allegations, Netflix announced that production of season six for "House of Cards" was suspended. But ultimately the company chose to suspend production of the show's last season indefinitely.
Unruh said she knows of at least one other young man who was "targeted" by Spacey on the MA island. Spacey apologized in an October 29 tweet - his last - but also said he had no memory of the alleged encounter.
