Lauren, who did not want her last name used, told the the Wall Street Journal that she was walking down the street in shorts and a t-shirt after leaving the gym on Monday when she was stopped by an officer who also stopped two other women in dresses.
Lauren said the officer asked them if they knew what was happening in the area, and asked them if they knew what the suspect looked for.
“He pointed at my outfit and said, ‘Don’t you think your shorts are a little short?’” she told the Journal. “He pointed at their dresses and said they were showing a lot of skin.”
