I was bent over unlocking my bike in front of DC9 when a guy (mid-20s) walking with a woman with a stroller (nice!) says “Excuse me” and grabs my ass. NOT EXCUSED. I’m not sure what he wanted, but it was a busy corner and I felt comfortable telling him to fuck off. Harassment hadn’t involved touching in DC for me up to this point, so I wanted to share.
