I recall a series of sex crimes committed by one or more subjects described as skinny young white men in the area south of Stanford last year (peeping toms, stalking, groping). Were any suspects arrested in those cases?

Spring has already sprung~ this guy apparently missed out and has continued his over zealous thinking of how to treat a woman. I just had something similar happen to me (and I am in my 60's!). I couldn't believe I was being singled out for what the perpetrator did (and suggested) that I took off running, with him in pursuit of me. I turned my head to see if he was still coming and tripped over the curb, landing on the asphalt face first, then breaking my patella of my knee in four places........... Some other woman called 911 for help for me when she saw me lying face down and bloody. Ambulance picked me up instead of the guy who was after was very unbelievable that it could happen to me. I spent a few months in the hospital recovery and still have not healed completely. Makes me think I will never go out after dark again and should be carrying mace in the day time. Sad to think I have to be "on guard" as I have read about a few other women running into these weirdos....

Don't miss out on the discussion!
