Another Case of Upskirting

I was exiting the Waterfront Metro station and  was riding up the 2nd escalator, that takes you to the street, and I noticed a man standing very close to me, on the next step down on the escalator. I took a step up, and he did as well. I felt something graze my inner thigh and turned around quickly. He had his arm reached out under my skirt and was snapping a picture.

“You like it.”

A few months ago, I was with some friends heading home after a party. We were at the SW Waterfront Metro waiting for a train. We were just standing there chatting when this young guy walked past us, turned all the way back around, leered, and then started telling us how great he thought we looked.  When we didn’t respond he said, “You want to marry me, don’t you?”  He didn’t direct his harassment at one of us in particular.  One of my friends started cussing him out and he said, “you like it.”  Then I said, “What makes you think it is ok to talk to us like that? Leave us alone.”  He laughs and walks off.
