I suggest you take some time to learn how sexual predators actually operate, since this fits in very well with the sort of grooming tactic favoured by paedophiles and others who target the young and vulnerable. Predatory sexual behaviour includes a whole lot more subtle action than the sort of violent assault and crude harassment that you've so narrowly focused on.

Wouldn't say better.

But by the reports, on the surface, more accurate.

Although there is nothing in them to say the hugs bit is accurate. Just suspected of.
