A lot of people on the boards are stating pretty much the same thing about the Haitian guy's powers only effecting mental abilities. I believe he may
also have the power to absorb people's energies or cause them to pass out, not their hero power, but their actual body's energy. When he took down
Sylar, all he did was put his hand over Sylar's mouth, which caused him to pass out.
There's a good chance he can only erase people's mental abilities and cause them pass out only through physical contact. After Claire's father
kidnapped the police officer, he told the Haitian to erase his memory, causing the Haitian guy to walk towards the police officer, before the camera
cuts away. In the hospital, where Claire's father once again asks the Haitian guy to wipe out a memory, the Haitian guy walks towards Claire's
rapist and closes the curtains around him. If he had the ability to wipe out memories through his mind alone, he wouldn't need to walk towards the
victim and keep a close distance to the one he is performing it on.
In the hospital, he could have easily wiped out the rapist's memory from another room or the hallway where no one would see him.
