“Dear PoPville,

Harrassment on 7th Street in Shaw

I was riding my bike to work (I live at 6th and P and go down this block every day and never have issues) and a guy was crossing P street in the middle of the street. When he saw me he starting running after me on my bike screaming “bitch” and reached out to shove me off of my bike but I swerved and he missed. Then he started chasing me and I had to run through the light on 7th and P to get away.

It isn’t the same man I don’t think from the other posts (I think I know which one that is). This guy looked to be late 20’s/young 30s, facial hair and was wearing a red jersey and flat billed hat with dark jeans.

I am sad to hear about so many incidents here, it’s just around the corner from my house and haven’t really heard about any problems until this summer.”
