    Two more women have come forward, accusing comedian Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting them decades ago.

    Former models, Linda Brown and Lise-Lotte Lublin said Cosby drugged and raped them, in a news conference held with their attorney Gloria Allred in Los Angeles Thursday.

    Brown claims that Cosby allegedly raped her in 1969, adding that he “has a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde personality,” where he fools people and cannot be trusted, reported USA Today.Linda Brown: Mr. C got me a soft drink, I blacked out.

    "I felt dirty, ashamed and embarrassed," Brown said. "I chose to speak out today because I want people to know who Mr. Bill Cosby really is. If you trust him, then you have been fooled by him, too."

    Lublin said the 77-year old Cosby drugged her, causing her to pass out in a Las Vegas hotel when she was 23 in 1989.

    The model is now petitioning for the state of Nevada to abolish the statute of limitations for sexual assault cases.

    "Every victim Bill Cosby has assaulted that has been called a whore and a liar has helped me become a survivor," Lublin said. "He appears to think rape is a joke, but let me tell you something, Bill, I'm not laughing."

    After making their statements, both women declined to answer questions. However, their lawyer, Allred, urged the public to push to reform statute of limitations laws.

    "It appears that Bill Cosby thinks he's 'far from finished,'" Allred said, referencing the title of the 77-year-old comedian's 2013 comedy special. "But we are also far from finished."

    Cosby’s attorney, Martin Singer, did not respond for comment.

    Over 20 women have accused Cosby of having sexually assaulted them in the past, causing NBC and Sony TV to drop a project they had been planning with the comedian.

    Cosby has denied all allegations against him.
