Shocking! Now, what did he do that is reprehensible? Is he not assumed innocent even before we hear his account of the alleged interaction?

A week ago. Why wasn’t this put out by the police earlier ?

Maybe the victim was too stressed/upset to give a statement or description to police soon after the incident.
