Victim of ‘twerking’ assault speaks out: I feared for my safety

The man who was sexually assaulted in a DC gas station convenient store when two women were twerking and groping him is now speaking out.

The man, who is a teacher and declined to give his name or allow his face to be made public because of the backlash he has received for filing the complaint, said that the women groped him and twerked around him. He also said that they had flashed him while he was filling up his car.

When the man asked the cashier for help, the cashier simply responded, “What do you want me to do?”

The victim then said that he noticed men outside, and he was concerned that they might have been pimps, so he was scared to act in self-defense because he did not know if the men outside would come after him.

“And then, when I had the idea that they were women, I thought they would have a pimp who was pushing them to be prostitutes who could have been outside with one of the gentlemen that were out there watching and witnessing, could have been with guns to come and shoot me. I did not want to be shot that day,” the victim said.
