Woman: Help, I was attacked today by a scrawny little turd who knocked me out then ran away.

Police: Do you know the man?

Woman: No I've never seen him before.

Police: Well, we can look on the CCTV if you like, but it was night time so the image is going to be crap; are you certain you don't know him?

Woman: I don't know him but I can describe him. He was young, like late teens, white, tall and thin like a pencil. Oh and he was sweating profusely because I think he was nervous around me, like maybe he was a virgin or something and he had a cheap looking T-Shirt on that made him look gay.

Police: Here is your crime report number madam. If you can look around town over the next few days, if you see this gawky looking idiot, please call after you've followed him to his home and give us the address, make sure to quote this number. Oh, and if possible, could you buy some handcuffs, you can get them in Ann Summers, and try to have him in custody before we arrive to save our officers from getting injured and suing the Police Force, that would be most helpful. Thank you, have a nice day.

Attacks on women should carry the same punishment as sexual attacks do make these pieces of sh!t sign some sort of register that they carry for the rest of there life. It would make it easy ire for a future partners to see that this low life has previous violence against women.

I can see your point but i'm afraid the stocks and having a few rotten tomatoes thrown at him will be no deterrent... what is need is the birch bringing back, seriously I mean it.

Cuff him and lock him in a room for half an hour with her boyfriend (if she has one) or her dad. If some little weasel like this attacked my missus or daughter, my rage would be beyond compare. Let them dish out their own justice by giving this feeble fool walking difficulties
