  1. The Scotts Lane incident is not a rape based on the info supplied. At best it’s an indecent assault. Describing it as a rape makes it seem like a much more serious crime than it is. Leading readers to conclude there is a rapist in the neighborhood. Is that all the information supplied. If so, the title of the incident should be corrected.

    • Hello Joe! Thanks for weighing in. We did add the word “alleged” to the Nextdoor posting and as for rape versus indecent assault, I think it’s clear from the description that no one is sure what happened at this point. Pending further investigation, we posted the report as classified by the police and with all the specifics they were willing to provide us.
