Bill Cosby sexual assault claims: 3 more women speak out
Three more women who claim they were sexually abused by Bill Cosby spoke out at a press conference on Wednesday.

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Three more women who claim they were sexually abused by Bill Cosby spoke out at a press conference on Wednesday.

Gloria Allred, who represents the three women, is asking Cosby to waive the statute of limitations for his cases, saying it will give him a chance to defend himself in a court of law.

The women are the latest to come forward with allegations against the 77-year-old comedian. With Allred present, the women described what they claim Cosby did to them.

Chelan says in 1986 she was 17, an aspiring model, working at the Las Vegas Hilton, when Cosby asked her to meet him and a modeling agent in his hotel suite.

She decided to go, taking her grandmother. She was sick, and claims Cosby gave her a pill that he said was an antihistamine. She also had three shots of amaretto and needed to lay down. Chelan says Cosby joined her.

"Next to me on the bed, (he) began pinching my left nipple. Humping on my leg while he was grunting. I could not open my eyes," said Chelan. "Thirteen to 16 hours later I woke up to him clapping his hands, saying 'daddy says wake up.'"

Chelan says Cosby then gave her $1,500 to buy something nice.

Helen Hayes says Cosby followed her around day and night at an event in Pebble Beach in 1973. She and her friends tried to lose him, but he found them.

"From behind, he reached over my shoulder and grabbed my right breast. I was stunned and angry because he had no right to do that," said Hayes. "His behavior was like that of a predator."

Beth Ferrier said in the mid-1980s she was an aspiring model and actress when she met Cosby in New York City.

She says she and Cosby had an affair for months. After breaking it off, Cosby contacted her and invited her to watch him perform in Colorado. During the visit, she says Cosby gave her a cappuccino.

"The next thing I knew, hours had passed. I woke up in the back of my car alone, my clothes were a mess, my bra was undone," said Ferrier. "I believe that Mr. Cosby drugged me, and sexually assaulted me that night."

In recent weeks, more than a dozen women have accused Cosby of drugging and sexually abusing them. Cosby's attorney, Marty Singer, did not immediately respond to Wednesday's accusations.
