“Hey, that hurt!”

I was running on M street with a friend. A man was walking past us and had plenty of room on his side of the sidewalk, but as he was walking by, he punched me in the arm, hard. He didn’t say anything after I said “Hey, that hurt!” – just kept walking. It was really unnerving, and it hurt a lot.

    This is creepy and unexpected. I wouldn’t be surprised if this person is well on his way to becoming extremely dangerous, while looking like a normal, unsuspicious member of society. Gross.
