One of two women caught on surveillance video making advances at and inappropriately touching a man at a D.C. gas station convenience store has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of sexual abuse.
Prosecutors said in a statement that 22-year-old Ayanna Marie Knight, formerly of Los Vegas, entered the plea Wednesday in Superior Court.
Knight was arrested last month after police released video of the incident. In the video, two women in short, tight dresses and heels make advances at a man near the store's counter, grabbing or touching him as he tries to move away. The man later contacted police.
Sentencing was set for Monday. No other arrests have been made in the case.
A telephone message seeking comment left early Thursday for Knight's attorney was not immediately returned.
