Followed by a Man in a SUV

I was walking north between Friendship Heights and Bethesda around 8 PM on April 25th when a young man in a large blue SUV pulled up to the intersection with Wisconsin from one of the side streets. He kept saying I was beautiful and sexy and repeatedly asked me to get into his vehicle.

I ignored him and kept walking. He drove back along the side streets and pulled out toward Wisconsin again, blocking my path forward. I walked around him as best I could and kept going. He finally gave up and drove off. I’m a bit miffed that I didn’t get a license plate number.

    I’ve been reading a lot of stories here lately about harassment in the Friendship Heights area. Sounds like that’s becoming a new “Columbia Heights Gauntlet”/”Harassment Hill”!

    I never thought guys would start acting up in that area!
