    I would lay money on the fact that the police report lists more identifying factors than this (and I hate to say this, but that would make it….inferior journalism). Approximate age? (This helps rule out probability that the perpetrator was a student or not). Race? Not that we want to stigmatize here, but it is a helpful identifying factor. Did he say anything? (Accent, speech impediment, baritone/tenor/bass?) Left handed or right? And, I have said this before and I will say it again: why the hell doesn’t SLOPD have a skilled Forensic Artist? The statistics vary greatly, but sociopaths do exist in our society, and so do rapists, child molesters, etc,. Knowledge is power-and it is also safety-as we grapple with the fact our society is becoming less and less safe.

    Sociopaths and pedophiles are those in the community that we need to be aware of. These are the key words here: be aware of. This guy can change that maroon sweatshirt and dye his hair in a day. But a forensic sketch hones in on details. And a journalist who does not seek this information really offers nothing but sensationalism.

    I think I will just get the ball rolling on the Forensic Artist thing by myself. A community that is aware: is safer. Remember when they had those bank robbers roll into town and they just did not fit in at all–so they were arrested right when entering the bank with weapons and also convicted? One person, aware of their surroundings can be like gold. That avoided trauma (or worse) for a lot of employees. Be aware, informed, and keep our crime rate low. And publish more details-Cal Coast News.!

    Good grief! Thank goodness this woman was able to defend herself. No bad she wasn’t strong enough to throw his a$$ over the railing.
