WHy is there no more information about this. IF this did take place in the daytime hours then the neighborhood needs to know if they should be on alert. Did this really happen or did this person make it up? Did she know her attacker? Why was no robo call made to the neighborhood. I am really concerned that this has been dropped. What happened, is it an isolated incident??? IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY ACROSS FROM A SCHOOL A WOMEN IS SEXUALLY ATTACKED...this is big news to me, why are the police so quiet on this one?
