Another woman has come forward to accuse George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States, of groping her.

A woman told CNN that Bush, who grew up in Greenwich and is now 93, grabbed her rear end at an event in April 1992, when he was still president. CNN did not disclose the woman's name.

"It was like a gentle squeeze," the woman was quoted as saying.

The woman said she thought it was an accident until other women came forward accusing the president of similar conduct. Six other women have accused Bush of groping them.

A spokesperson for Bush declined to comment on the latest allegation. On Monday, Bush was accused of groping a 16-year-old in 2003.

Bush and his wife Barbara were married at First Presbyterian Church in Rye on Jan. 6, 1945. Barbara Bush is a Rye native.
