Police in Washington, DC are looking for two
Update, Nov. 18: Washington Tharpe, the victim in this case, has an agent *rolls eyes* and is speaking out. In an interview with a local TV station, the 40-year-old school teacher says the assault lasted ten minutes both inside and outside the convenience store and continued inside a car wash where the two women chased him. He says he feared the two women, whom he, like us, think are men, was trying to rob him. He says he initially was embarrassed to show his face and he sees himself as an advocate for male victims of sexual assault. "You know what it is so funny? Like right now, I don't think it has anything to do with courage," he says. "I am like, I am so comfortable because I know the truth. I didn't commit a crime. I didn't do anything wrong, so I have nothing to worry about. It is not about me being afraid or not afraid or embarrassed or not embarrassed. I am speaking the truth. Maybe it will help someone else in the future." Whatever, girl and how you doing!
Here's the interview:
