Donald Trump Grabbed My Breasts at the US Open, New Accuser Claims

by at .  Updated at .

It's been nearly two weeks since the now-notorious footage of Donald Trump boasting about acts of sexual assault during a conversation with Billy Bush was first released by the Washington Post.

During that time, several women have come forward to accuse Trump of sexual assault, each of them telling remarkably similar accounts of being groped or harassed by the Republican presidential candidate.

Today, New York City yoga instructor Karena Virginia added her name to the growing list of Trump accusers:

"In 1998, I was at the US Open tennis tournament in Flushing, Queens, New York," Virginia said today at a press conference organized by her attorney, Gloria Allred.

"I was waiting for a car to arrive to take me home. As I was waiting, Donald Trump approached me. I knew who he was, but I had never met him."

Virginia goes on to say that Trump was with several other men, and he began loudly commenting on her appearance.

"I was quite surprised when I overheard him talking to the other men about me.

She quoted Trump as saying:

"'Hey, look at this one. We've never seen her before. Look at those legs.'"

Virginia says Trump wasted no time in approaching her and initiating unwelcome physical contact.

"He walked up to me and reached his right arm, and grabbed my right arm. Then his hand touched the right inside of my breast.

Virginia claims that when she pulled away from Trump, the real estate mogul became irate.

"Don't you know who I am?" he allegedly asked her several times.

All these years later, Virginia is clearly still shaken by the memory of her encounter with Trump.

Unfortunately, it wouldn't be the last time she crossed paths with the billionaire.

"About five years ago, I saw Mr. Trump once again," Virginia told reporters today.

"This time, we were in a business setting, and there were many people around ... This time, mixed in with the feelings of shame, I felt disgust.

She added:

"I came to the realization that I was the victim, and he had violated me years earlier when he had groped me."

Trump currently has a historically low popularity rating among women, and the "nasty woman" comment that he made about Hillary Clinton at last night's debate is unlikely to help him change that. 

Many pundits now believe that Clinton may win in a landslide with a double-digit margin of victory.
