A woman pleaded guilty to sexual abuse in District of Columbia Superior Court Wednesday after she and a friend were caught on a surveillance camera grinding their bodies on a man’s crotch.

Ayanna Marie Knight, 22, a former Las Vegas resident, pleaded down to the misdemeanor crime after prosecutors wanted to charge her with third-degree sexual abuse, NBC Washington reports.

According to D.C. Code, a person can face a maximum fine of $1,000 and 180 days in jail for misdemeanor sexual abuse.

Knight and an unidentified accomplice approached the victim, Washington Tharpe, a 40-year-old local middle school teacher, while he was waiting in line at a Shell gas station along New York Ave. NE, an area known for its prostitution problem.

According to a police report, the women “used force and grabbed (the victim’s) groin and buttocks multiple times in a very aggressive manner without his permission and without his consent.”

Tharpe asked for help from two cashiers, but was ignored. The women then followed the man to his car where they continued to grope and grind on him while he pumped his gas.

This doesn’t appear to be the first time the two women have been spotted assaulting men along the strip. A man told FOX 5 he recognizes the women and says the same two women twerked on him a few days earlier.

The man, Marquette Evans of Northwest D.C., says the women did the same thing to other men and they all pushed the women away.

“None of the guys went for it, like none of the guys,” Evans told the TV station.

Tharpe told ABC 7 he was scared for his life after the women followed him to his car, because he thought they were trying to kill him.
