    Just because someone reported to the Police that he/she was raped, doesn’t mean its true. This is just a list of the complaints made to the police.

    I’m also interested in finding our more details on the assault. I live quite near where it happened, and this is very concerning.

    If you wrote only about the crimes of theft from locked cars, how much would it reduce the numbers?

    More details on the rape? Same gender/opposite? Of legal age? Drugs or alcohol? Domestic abuse? Stranger? Where? This is disturbing.
