"All I have to say is the following, in this time and age we need to let people speak for themselves; we have to let people express themselves", he said.

Gooding, 51, is alleged to have groped a woman at the Magic Hour Bar & Lounge in Manhattan on Sunday, with TMZ reporting that the unnamed victim called 911 hours later to report the alleged nonconsensual touching.

Cape Town - A night out for drinks turned sour for Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr after a woman opened a case of sexual assault against him.

Gooding denied the accusations when approached by TMZ on Wednesday. Gooding's lawyer, Mark Heller, told the Associated Press that video from the bar showed his client did not commit a crime and "there is not the slightest scintilla of inappropriate conduct on his part". Gooding's lawyer said security video will exonerate the actor. He said he was surprised police and prosecutors were moving forward with the case.

A spokesman for the Manhattan District Attorney's Office declined to comment. "And now I'm giving the process the chance to show what really happened, what went down", Cuba added of his recent groping incident.

According to sources with knowledge of the case, the second accuser claimed Gooding had grabbed her buttocks when she met the Academy Award victor at the Butter Restaurant in Midtown back in March 2008.

Previously released video posted on social media shows Gooding at Magic Hour on Sunday night singing the Journey hit "Faithfully" and posing for pictures with fans.

Gooding first rose to fame as the star of "Boyz N the Hood" in 1991, before going on to win an Academy Award for best supporting actor in 1996's "Jerry Maguire". His signature line, "Show me the money", became a popular catchphrase.
