Update: Teevee coverage:


  1. A guy matching this description attempted to abduct 3 women already. He was following my friend and she got his plates and reported him. When she did it the police didn't even know about the attempted abductions in the news. The police have had this information since summer. Sad.

  2. Shit. Time to rename the complex gain.

  3. I don't find that funny. A woman's life was destroyed.
