Merriam-Webster defines “twerking” as “sexually suggestive dancing characterized by rapid, repeated hip thrusts and shaking of the buttocks especially while squatting.”
Just over a month ago, two women allegedly assaulted a man in the convenience store of the Shell gas station on the 1700 block of New York Avenue NE, an incident that was caught on the store’s security camera. Police are now looking for those women, who attempted to fondle the man while he was waiting to pay. The police have classified the case as third-degree sexual abuse.
Update 4:35 p.m.: DCist reports that MPD has arrested a person in connection with the alleged sexual abuse. The victim spoke with Fox 5 anonymously, saying the women followed him outside to the station’s carwash, where he had gone to call 911, and they continued to harass him.
