I wanted to share that on Wednesday evening at about 6.05pm, I was walking past the intersection of 5th and R NW in Shaw when a black male, about 5’10”, walked by me and grabbed my butt. I turned around and shouted at him, but he kept walking down the street, never reacting, as if nothing happened. About two blocks later I passed a police car and ended up reporting it. I spoke to about six different officers and eventually a sex crimes unit detective over the course of about an hour-all were very professional and kind. The detective opened an investigation and said she would see if there were any video cameras that captured what happened.
Just another reality check that there are crazy people out there with zero regard for basic humanity, but it was reassuring that the police officers in my neighborhood all took the situation, and myself, very seriously.”
