WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Most would agree, twerking has a time and a place.

However, at a Washington, D.C. gas station, these women play by their own rules.

In surveillance footage released by D.C. police this week, two unidentified women are seen twerking on, groping and harassing a man they did not know.

The bizarre incident, which happened on Oct. 6, is being classified as sexual abuse and has authorities on the hunt for the two suspects.

According to police, the video shows just a portion of the relentless assault.

Both women followed the man outside the gas station convenience shop and continued to harass and grope him.

He reportedly ran to a nearby car wash where he called 911.

While chatter online dismissed the attack, calling it aggressive flirting, police are taking the incident very seriously.

The suspects face third degree sexual abuse charges and if convicted, could also face a maximum fine of $100,000 and up to 10 years in prison.
