A nightclub may be an appropriate place to randomly start “twerking” -- but in a convenience store? Not so much.

That’s what happened at gas station in Washington, D.C., and now police are asking for the public’s help to identify two women involved in the alleged sexual assault against a man who clearly wasn’t interested.
Surveillance video, captured on Oct. 7, shows a man talking on the phone while getting money from an ATM. Two women in short dresses then come into the store – one of the women, wearing a silver dress, proceeds to rub her buttocks against the man’s front side while making a purchase.
Then the woman’s friend, who dons a short red dress, makes several attempts of her own to get the victim’s attention, even attempting to fondle the man’s crotch area.
Officials – who believe the women should be charged with third-degree sexual assault -- are now attempting to track down the suspects, who left the store a short time later.
According to WTVR, the charge includes inappropriate touching and “involves actual force, threats putting the person in fear of death, bodily injury or kidnapping, or rendering the person unconscious.”
