A second woman came forward on Monday and accused Roy Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16 years old.

Speaking during a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred, Bevery Young Nelson, said Moore approached her in 1975 at an Alabama restaurant where she worked. Nelson said Moore was a regular customer and often stayed until the restaurant closed. She said he often made remarks about her looks.

"I did nothing to encourage this behavior," Nelson said, CBS News reported. "I did not respond to any of Mr. Moore's flirtatious behavior."

Nelson said one night Moore offered to give her a ride home in his car. When Nelson got in the car, she said Moore drove around to an empty parking lot behind the restaurant and proceeded to assault her.

She said Moore groped her breasts and when she tried to open the car door leave, "he reached over and locked it so I could not get out," CBS reported.

Nelson said she struggled and tried to fight Moore off while yelling at him to stop, but instead of stopping she said Moore "squeezed my neck attempting to force my head onto his crotch."

Nelson said she continued to squirm and tried to fight Moore off.

"I was determined that I was not going to allow him to force me to have sex with him. I was terrified. He was also trying to pull my shirt off. I thought that he was going to rape me. I was twisting and struggling and begging him to stop. I had tears running down my face," Nelson said.

Eventually Moore gave up, Nelson said, and then he told her "You are a child. I am the District Attorny of Etowah County. If you tell anyone about this, no one will believe you."

Nelson said he then allowed her to open the car door and she either fell out of the car or he pushed her out.

"I was on the ground as he pulled out of the parking area behind the restaurant," Nelson said.

The latest allegation comes days after The Washington Post published a story including accusations from four women alleging Moore had pursued romantic relationships with them when he was adult and they were teenagers.

One of the women, Leigh Corfman, claims Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 14 and he was 32. She told the Post that Moore approached her outside of her mother's custody hearing and several days later he brought her to his home where he groped her and placed her hand on his penis over his underwear.

Moore has denied the allegations and his Senate Campaign Chairman Bill Armistead accused Allred of leading a "witch hunt" against Moore.

"She is only around to create a spectacle. Allred was the attorney who claims credit for giving us Roe v. Wade which has resulted in the murder of tens of millions of unborn babies," Armistead said in an email statement to supporters, CBS reported.
