Among many disturbing things about this case, one thing disturbs me probably the most.
This incident happened in August. Who walks around with any sort of balaclava on their person during the summer? Even in northerly Scotland, I doubt
it's cold enough to need one in August?
The newspaper article said it was a para-military style balaclava. I've just done a quick google search to see what they look like. I have to say they
are significantly different to the one my friend uses to keep warm in winter.
The article doesn't make it clear if he went home to fetch the mask specifically to use whilst attacking his victim, or if he had it on him from the
start of his night out.
Since he was injured there must have been ample opportunity to collect a sample of his dna. I wonder if anyone thought of doing this and running it
through the dna database?
Who knows if he might have been linked to previous attacks on young women. If I have just made an unfair accusation against him..... well, tough. What
can he expect after this despicable attack?
I noticed, too that no photograph of him was included in the article. A pity. I believe I've read newspaper articles before where the victim's
photograph has been included. I don't think he could cry that it would be a violation of his rights if someone found and printed his picture - even if
it wasn't the usual thing to do.
Oh wait, he was prepared to attack a young woman and then cry 'foul' when she defended herself. What a piece of work.
I've nothing but admiration for his victim but I feel very sorry for her. This wretched excuse for a human being knows where she lives. What if he
decides to retaliate against the kicking she gave him? Let's hope that if he tries again she can judge exactly how far to go in defending herself
