Creep on the Escalator

I was walking down the escalators into the metro station, and I was holding my skirt so that it wouldn’t blow up in the wind. As I walked on the left, I passed a man who leaned over, placed his hand on the arm that was holding my skirt, and said “just let it go.” I yelled “EXCUSE ME” loud enough so that the people around me could hear, and hurried down the steps. It happened so fast, but I wish I had said something less polite to him.
