Location: Columbia and 18th St NW (Adams Morgan)
Time: Late Night (12am-5am)
I was walking next to a male friend of mine and coming from the other direction was a man stumbling a bit was walking straight towards me and I could tell he was going to say something to me. He said to me as we passed each other “Let me suck your pussy.” I screamed “shut the fuck up” and as I walked by I heard a couple “ohs” in surprise from other men on the street.
I usually don’t say anything but must have felt safer since it was a crowded street and I was next to a male friend.
