  1. Are there more details on the attack? What specifically took place?

    I was attacked in Columbia Heights in August (I posted my story here as well) by a man of the same description (though obviously it’s a vague description), and it involved him grabbing me from behind, groping my breasts, and shoving his hands between my legs.

    I’m wondering if this girl experienced something similar, and if so, if this could be the same assailant.
