Location: Crystal City Metro (VA)
Time: Evening Rush Hour (3:30pm-7:30pm)
I was sitting by the door on the train when someone exited and felt my leg as they were walking out. This wasn’t just a nudge or an accidental brushing, this was full on felt up my entire leg, by the time I looked up, he was nearly out the door.
I reported it to the Metro police. According to a witness, this man might be deaf and might be holding a sign asking for money, so be on the lookout for this person.
