Eight current and former staffers on House of Cards have accused Kevin Spacey of creating “a ‘toxic’ work environment through a pattern of sexual harassment,” and one former employee said Spacey sexually assaulted him, CNN Money reports.

The crew members, who spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity, “described Spacey’s behavior as ‘predatory,’ saying it included nonconsensual touching and crude comments and targeted production staffers who were typically young and male,” the news network notes in a story posted online this evening.

Several other people have come forward this week to accuse the House of Cards star of harassment or assault, after BuzzFeed published a story Sunday in which actor Anthony Rapp said Spacey aggressively attempted to “seduce” him in 1986, when Rapp was only 14 and Spacey 26. Spacey said he did not remember the alleged incident, “but if I did behave as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior.” House of Cards has shut down production indefinitely, and Spacey said through his publicist that he is seeking treatment. He also came out as gay.

One former production assistant on House of Cards told CNN that Spacey sexually assaulted him during an early season of the award-winning Netflix show, in which Spacey played an unscrupulous U.S. president. The production assistant was sent to pick up Spacey and drive him to the set, about 30 miles from Baltimore. Spacey ended up taking over the driving, and while doing so he put his hands down the other man’s pants, the crew member said.

“I was in a state of shock,” the production assistant said. “He was a man in a very powerful position on the show and I was someone very low on the totem pole and on the food chain there.” There was more to the incident, but the P.A. did not want it described for fear it would reveal his identity.
