A few evenings ago around 8 or 9pm, I was getting off the bus at Georgia and Irving, and was walking east on Irving back to my house. I was just a few houses away, and a man came up behind me, and kept saying, “hey beautiful. hey beautiful. You have an extra cigarette for me, beautiful?” There was no one else on the street, but I was on the phone at the time, and loudly stated that someone was harassing me, and gave my exact address at that moment. I kept walking for a few more feet, and then turned around, and saw that the man who was behind me had turned away from Irving and was walking down Georgia.
