So, it wasn’t verbal harassment, however…I was walking home from from the PetCo in Cleveland Park, down Porter Rd towards Mt. Pleasant, on Sunday morning. I was just crossing the overpass when I noticed a bike leaning against the guardrail on the street side to my left. As I get closer, I turn my head to the right and notice a young guy (15-25 yrs) standing only 5 feet off the sidewalk in the weeds, masturbating and staring at me. He didn’t say a word. Neither did I, I just sped up and didn’t acknowledge him at all. Sometimes, I wish civilians were able to carry Tasers.
