“I Was Sexually Harassed at the Woodley Park Bus Stop.”

Location: Bus stop at Calvert & Connecticut Ave NW (Woodley Park)
Time: Night (7:30pm-12am)

This was about a year ago. I was awaiting a bus, and a man started to make small talk with me. Somewhere along the conversation, it turned bad. He told me, “I bet you’ve got a nice pussy.” It was at that point I decided to walk to my destination as that would be more comfortable than waiting one more moment for a bus.
