D.C. police say they have made one arrest in connection with a sexual abuse incident inside a gas station convenience store.

It happened at the Shell gas station in the 1700 block of New York Avenue in Northeast D.C. back on October 7. FOX 5's Bob Barnard said surveillance cameras captured the women twerking and inappropriately touching a man inside of the gas station store at around 4 p.m. Barnard, who spoke to the victim by phone, said that he claims everything began inside of the store when he entered to pay for gas. The victim told Barnard the women came over to him as soon as he entered the store. He asked the women to stop and even asked the clerk for assistance.

The man said that the women followed him as he exited the store and continued to follow even as he walked toward  a nearby car wash to call police.

In the video, the man clearly did not appreciate the advances and later filed a complaint with police. Both women face third degree sex abuse charges.

The victim told Barnard that he wasn't sure if the women were men posing as women, or if they were actually women.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (202) 727-9099.
