Police in Washington DC are looking to arrest two women caught on shop CCTV accused of sexually assaulting a man by twerking against him and fondling his genitalia. Interesting, because in Nigeria, randy men spray them with money for twerking, isn’t it?
Twerking is to dance or move your body in sexually suggestive twitches and jerks. The incident happened recently at a store on the 1700 block of New York Avenue.
Surveillance video shows a man talking on the phone while getting money from an ATM.
In the footage, two African-American women in short dresses come into the store. One of the women, wearing a silver dress, rubs her butt against the front of the man while purchasing something.
When the victim backs away, her friend, in a short red dress makes several attempts to cozy up to the man, including trying to touch his pants inseam.
It appears the man did not know the women and had no interest in getting better acquainted.
The two women left the store, but police are now trying to find them.
The twerking might seem like fun and games to some, but DC police believe the two women should be charged with third degree sexual assault, which includes inappropriate touching and “involves actual force, threats putting the person in fear of death, bodily injury or kidnapping, or rendering the person unconscious.
