The fact is that “ambush-style” rapes are not rare (Vol. 3, Issue 13). What is rare is the person who reports them, and rarer still is the response from law enforcement…at least for a long time and including in my lifetime. My rape kit, to this day, remains untested.

I’m proud of the victim in the reported situation, and thankful for Rapid DNA; the Me Too movement, perhaps, had an impact?

Whatever the case, my point is, this area, like EVERYWHERE is NOT immune to rapists, and the FROM BEHIND tactic is in full force.
