Groped by a Guy on a Bike

On Thursday December 2, 2010 at approximately 6:30 pm, I was running west on Lee Highway, toward the George Mason intersection, when a male on a bicycle came up behind me and grabbed my butt. He was wearing dark clothing, perhaps a black puffy coat, and unfortunately that’s all I noticed of him as he rode by me. I believe he was the same person on a bike who I ran past a few minutes earlier, in which case he is younger (teens to 30s) and of smaller build. It was most disconcerting to me that the guy did this on a major street, during one of the busiest times of the day.

    All these bike-by gropings in the same vicinity in Arlington—it’s got to be the same person doing it! I hope he’s caught.
