In an interview with Washington D.C.’s FOX 5DC, the man, who asked not to be identified, stated that the incident occurred when he was getting gas at the Shell station in the 1700 block of New York Avenue NE on October 7 around 4 p.m. Surveillance video captures the women coming over to him as they are shown twerking and groping him.
In addition, the man said the women also flashed him while he pumped gas and followed him as he called the authorities.
“You don’t know who these people are. I was afraid of my safety. Like I said, I thought they were either transvestites, or women, or men dressed like women,” the victim said, adding that he asked the cashier for help.
“What do you want me to do?” the man behind the counter replied.
The victim goes on to say that men who he believed to be pimps were present outside the gas station. As a result, he was concerned about what would happen to him if he acted in self-defense against women.
“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,” said the victim, who mentioned that he is a teacher.
In addition, the man stated that he didn’t want to show his face in light of the social media backlash he has received for filing a complaint against the women. Fox 5 notes that police revealed they arrested one of the women, 22-year-old Ayanna Marie Knight of Las Vegas, on Tuesday (Nov. 10).
Although she faces a third-degree sex abuse charge., the other woman has not been caught at this time.
