Driving home from work on Monday (June 1), a black SUV pulled up next to me at a stoplight. As the light turned green and I started to drive, I could see out of the corner of my eye that the man in the car was driving erratically, waving his arms, and shouting something at me (I couldn’t hear exactly what, thankfully, because I had music on). I chose to look straight forward because I’ve been harassed in my car before [In 2003 when driving home from school on I-66 in Virginia, a man exposed himself to me and my friend; he was literally masturbating while going 65 mph].
Anyways, this time I grabbed my cell phone and put it on camera mode to try so that I could try to take a picture. I took a deep breath, turned my head, and held up my phone. As soon as he saw what I was doing, he swerved and turned right onto Peabody Street immediately. Unfortunately my picture didn’t turn out because everything happened too quickly, but I really hope that I at least gave him a good scare.
Location: New Hampshire and Peabody Streets NE
