    You know, not being able to give a good description of the criminal means they will continue to do crime until they are actually caught. So those of you that encounter a criminal, just do your best in giving a good description so that he/she can be arrested. a "vague description" will not help the criminal to be caught. Get a good look at that face if its not covered up.

    Why in the world would she carry on a small conversation with a man she did not even know? Of course, this man already had intention of wrong. She should have just went in the house and locked her door.

    "a vague description" - huh? This was 3 in the afternoon and she couldn't describe him?

    Since you are quite obviously a woman who has been assaulted before, how much did you remember about your attackers appearance?
