Woman Involved In “Twerking Attack” At D.C. Gas Station Charged With Sexual Assault

One of the two women involved in a sexual assault incident at a Washington, D.C. gas station has been arrested, NBC Washington reports.

Ayanna Marie Knight, 22, was charged with third-degree sexual abuse on Tuesday. The Las Vegas native and her friend were seen on surveillance camera twerking on and touching another gas station customer in Northeast D.C. on Oct. 7.

The teacher, who asked not to be identified for fear of backlash, said the women approached him asking for money while a man waited outside for them.

He told reporters he backed away from the women and blocked one of them from continuously touching his private area and “twerking” on him. Once he got outside, they reportedly flashed him and tried to stop him from entering his car. He fled to a car wash behind the gas station, where he called the police. The women left when he got off his phone.
