WMATA, Groping on the Metro is a Problem

I was in a crowded train and felt something behind me. At first I thought it was a bag, but then it definitely moved. The guy behind me was groping me. I ran off at metro center and got on a redline train. He followed me on the train and aggressively grabbed my butt before jumping through the open doors. This was not the first or last time I have been physically harassed on the metro, but it is one of my most distinct memories. Some of the stories I hear sound like we’re living in Cairo and not the nation’s capital. It’s embarrassing and it’s time WMATA did something.

    That was probably uncomfortable for you. Sorry to hear that that happened. Some guys are creeps. On a related topic, sometimes on crowded metro trains, it’s impossible not to rub against other people. Do you think that constitutes groping?
