You think maybe with all the rape and assault charges the police might have something to go on by now, since they are all for a 40-45 yr old man.

And they must have some kind of description.

You know what the police need to do, is have a website that a community can participate in, where they can state who and what they are looking for.

A community as active as lawrence would make this successfull, and you might be surprised how good some of us are at finding things / people.

Berserk I think the police know, the way it is written since it happened to one girl several times and the other "knew" her assailant. I think it's pretty fair to say that both men are known by police and it's just a matter of questioning and or finding the subject.
