*Twerking on people without their consent can get you locked up – and two women in D.C. found this out the hard way.
The dancing pair are facing charges of sexual abuse after surveillance video captured them twerking on and groping a stranger at a gas station in Northeast.
One of the women was arrested Tuesday after police released video of the incident, which took place Oct. 7 on the 1700 block of New York Avenue NE at 4 p.m.
Footage shows a man minding his own business in the checkout line when a woman in front of him “backs that thang up” against him. When the man tries to walk away, a second woman follows him and appears to grope him. The second woman won’t leave him alone – grabbing and touching him for several more minutes.
The police report classifies the incident as third-degree sexual abuse, and describes the women as having “used force and grabbed [the victim’s] groin and buttocks multiple times in a very aggressive manner without his permission and without his consent.”
