    Yes but this sketch was released what 5 days after the incident and only when the mother went on local television stations saying the police were'nt doing anything. A 5ft 8jn 300lb black man is not that elusive come on someone had to have seen this, or something just isnt right about this one. I lived in this neighborhood for years people notice everything around here especially a 300lb black man with his arms on the neck of a young white woman. Sorry if this may sound racist but it's the truth.
