Hmmm is a registered user.

Remember the comments doubting the Werry Park woman's story? Yeah, this is the reason to not doubt these reports - because men like this actually accelerate their behavior quite quickly. They take advantage of a stranger's politeness and use it to their advantage. This is how battery moves from crime to sex crime and how the suspect builds confidence. That's why these incidents need to be reported and investigated. I'm so glad that this man was caught!
