good evening. i'm derek derek. >> i'm jan jeffcoat. two sex crimes took place last night in the 1400 block in silver spring. >> reporter: the first incident happened in one of these silver spring apartment buildings behind me. a young man exposed himself to a 36-year-old woman before he took off into another one of these buildings and found another victim. this one he attacked.
she was willing to go on camera for us tonight to tell us her story. >> i realize that things like this happen all the time. >> reporter: you just don't think it will happen to you. >> it was surreal. >> reporter: this 20-year-old silver spring woman was nearly raped. >> i don't think anyone should feel that scared. >> reporter: just a few feet from her front door. >> it was not late. it was 10:30. >> reporter: she walked into her apartment building at the hampshire west apartments in silver spring. in the lobby stood a man in his 20s or 30s. >> i had never seen him before. >> reporter: he began talking to her thinks in spanish, though slurring his words. when he began smoking marijuana, she said it frightened her, but what happened next angered her. >> he then took out money from his pocket and offered it to me and my guess was that he was offering it to me for sex. when he had offered me money, that made me angry.
>> reporter: that cocktail of anger and fear was then tested. >> at that moment he attacked me. he came at me very fast. he threw me up against the wall and i shoved him away. i was confused. >> reporter: he didn't stop. this time she says throwing her to the floor. >> then he ripped off my pants and i started screaming and kicking and that scared him. he ran away. >> reporter: the attack lasted about a minute, but by the end of it she had fought for control. >> i just wouldn't let anyone do that to me without me putting up a fight first. if you don't think you have a chance, you should make one. >> she did a great job. really brought attention to herself which is what you want to do in those scenes and absolutely amazing that she's sitting here in front of cameras today. >> i'm just very thankful that i was able to scare him off. >> reporter: thankful and ever more cautious.
>> you can't really be too careful. that doesn't mean there's any good people in the world. it's just there's some you should look out for. >> reporter: relatively speaking, it ended well for the victim considering she was able to fight the suspect off, but that suspect is still out there and police fear that he could still be dangerous. you have a description of that suspect, derek. jan. >> we do. thank you. the woman described the suspect as a hispanic man about 5 afternoon 8, 170 pounds in his late 20s to early 30s wearing a furry hat and a black jacket. it is round 2 in the battle between house republicans and d.c. leaders over the new law making marijuana use legal in d.c. now one lawmaker wants to go after the city's federal funding. jim osman is live on capitol hill with more on this latest threat. what's the deal? >> reporter: hi, derek. good evening, folks at home.
it's clear that some members of congress aren't happy that d.c. is going against their wishes. a maryland republican congressman andy harris tonight is threatening to find funding areas appropriated to the district for congress was too generous with the citizens of the district. adam eidinger backed the marijuana legalization initiative 71 which voters approved overwhelmingly. >> they're acting like bullies and near trying to intimidate the -- they're trying to intimidate the entire district government which is duly elected. we have to stand up to it. that's the best way to stop a bully. >> reporter: two other house republicans lawmakers threatened to put mayor muriel bowser in prison if she allowed the initiative to become law today. she's still free and it's d.c. law. >> i didn't think they were actually going to put the mayor or council members in jail. i kind of find that rather amusing. >> reporter: that might have been congressional bluster, but this new threat tonight calls
into question $670 million d.c. received last year from congress, yet with larger issues looming in congress such as tomorrow's deadline to fully fund the department of homeland security there's doubt higher- ups in the house like house speaker john boehner or senate republican majority leader mitch mcconnell will enter this dust-up at all. >> boehner andmcconnell, they're trying to get some legislation through congress to keep the department of homeland security open. near dealing with the affordable care act and immigration issues. so this really appears to be a small minority group of individuals that have a problem with initiative 71, but it's not a majority of congress. >> reporter: we reached out to the republican lawmakers we mentioned in our piece and did not hear back from them tonight. we should also tell you there's been a lot of political back and forth in the last few days on this issue, but all of this may end up in court. jim osman, wusa9 news.
>> for those concerned about this, this d.c. marijuana law specifies that only people over age 21 may possess 2 ounces or less of marijuana and you can smoke it on your private property. you can also grow up to six plants with no more than three of them mature at a time, plus you can give away but not sell an ounce or less of the drug to somebody else. in fact, we've got everything you need to know about d.c.'s new marijuana law on our wusa9 mobile news app. our sister publication usa today reports the senate appears ready to pass the home land security spending bill before funding for the agency runs out at midnight tomorrow. a handful of senators who object to the measure said today they do not intend to use procedural moves to delay the vote. darrell issa said the house might consider a three week stopgap funding bill to keep homeland security from a partial shutdown. a vote on that bill also could come tomorrow. some of today's snow melted
