“he had followed me for the last block trying to get my attention” – New story
I was walking from the [coffee store] nearby the Metro station on New York Ave & 9th street headed to work in the morning. I had headphones on listening to music minding my own business. This man touched me to stop me as I was walking into the office building where I work. I freaked because I didn’t know why he was touching me. He claimed he had followed me for the last block trying to get my attention and was wondering if he could talk to me for a minute. I firmly said no and started to walk away but he persisted trying to talk to me. The security officer at the entrance of my job then had to ask him to leave and asked if I was okay.
