I was walking down Georgia, getting ready to make a right onto Otis, and as I walked in front of Lions Liquors (on Georgia), an older male (who was with another male) started saying “hey baby, what’s up?” and eventually said that I “have nice titties.” I turned around, politely but firmly said “that is inappropriate, please don’t say that,” and turned back around and continued to walk. He called after me and starting threatening me- I didn’t hear much of what he said, but I heard him calling me a bitch in a very threatening tone. I turned onto Otis and didn’t see him again.
