WASHINGTON — Police are hoping the public can help in identifying two women accused of sexually abusing a man in a convenience store.

Police have just released video of the incident that occurred last month in a Washington D.C. gas station.

The video shows two woman twerking and grinding on a man while he is talking on the phone. It appears the man did not know them.

He tries to move away from the women as they continue to touch him.

Both women face third-degree sexual abuse charges, according to WUSA.  The charge includes inappropriate touching and according to state code “involves actual force, threats putting the person in fear of death, bodily injury or kidnapping, or rendering the person.”

The penalty for someone convicted of third-degree sexual abuse is a maximum fine of $100,000 and up to 10 years imprisonment.
