Another woman has accused George H.W. Bush of groping her buttocks without consent - and RadarOnline.com has learned the victim was just 16 when the alleged incident happened.

Time magazine reported on Monday that Rosyln Corrigan is accusing Bush of groping her buttocks when she was standing next to him for a photo at a November 2003 event at a Central Intelligence Agency office, which she attended with her parents.

But Corrigan did tell her mother about the incident, and later told other friends and acquaintances about the incident over the years. "To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes most sincerely".

Last week, The Post published an extensive report detailing the experience of Leigh Corfman, who said Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama initiated a sexual encounter with her in 1979, when she was 14 years old. A Bush spokesperson tells "USA Today" the ex-president "does not have it in his heart" to knowingly cause anyone distress.

Corrigan is at least the fifth woman to claim Bush groped her.

Corrigan joins five other women who have accused the 41st president of inappropriate touching while posing for photos. "I was really, really confused", Corrigan told TIME. "I was like, 'Oh my goodness, what just happened?'"

Corrigan is the sixth woman to make similar accusations against Bush in recent weeks. McGrath's statement Monday did not elaborate.

McGrath later noted that Bush is confined to a wheelchair and frequently has his arm lower on the waists of people when he takes photos.

"To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke - and on occasion, he has patted women's rears in what he meant to be a good-natured manner", McGrath previously said. "I was actually there to be taken seriously, and I wasn't", she added.

Actress Heather Lind, who appeared in the AMC's series 'Turn: "Washington's Spies", wrote that Bush touched her inappropriately a few years ago as they were posing posting for a photograph and while she did not get into the specifics of the incident, she referred to the incident as a sexual assault. "And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again". That's when things went south, she said. However, Bush has only been in a wheelchair since 2012, and he is standing in the 2003 photo with Corrigan. "I can't sleep anymore, because that's not true, and it's not an excuse".
