Have you been attacked by someone that got away? Or do you know someone that has been? Well this is for you not only to read and learn from but to SHARE the knowledge with your friends and family....
If you or a loved-one was ever attacked and you needed to explain your attacker's physical features to the police, what would you tell them? Did you observe EVERYTHING about your attacker? Did you miss something? Identifying physical features on an attacker is key to finding them.
Here are a few examples:
- Height, weight & sex
- Eye & Hair Color (and type of haircut/style)
- Scars or lines in and around face
- Does he/she wear glasses?
- Facial Hair
I know it's a lot to think about when you're being attacked, but it's all very important! Try to stay relaxed and keep your mind clear when describing someone after the fact. Scan your memory for vivid pictures of the incident (as painful as it may be) and don't rush yourself, take time to remember EVERYTHING.
Other things to think about: Did the person have an accent? Were they driving a vehicle, and if so what kind and color? And did you get the license plate number (even a partial)/state? Did they have a speech impediment? Did they say anything about where they they came from, where they want to take you or where they're going? Do they use any names?
The easiest (and in my humble opinion, BEST) thing to do: SCRATCH THE CRAP OUT OF THEIR FACE. This way, three things happen... First, you now have their DNA under your nails. Second, they'll be in pain and concentrate on that instead of you. And third, now they'll have a big 'ol gash across their face that can be easily recognizable in public or in a lineup!
Be aware! Stay safe!
