Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.
There can sometimes be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be researching the answer to your question, helping other customers, or taking a break. If we're writing late in the evening, I may need to get some sleep and resume helping you the following morning.
Sometimes I'm unable to read your entire question until AFTER I write back to you. So, if I suggest something you already tried, it's because I couldn't see part of your original question. Just write back to me and let me know.
Answer: You can tell your neighbors, but I would avoid putting something in writing. Either way, the alleged assailant can sue you for defamation. (Your defense would be "truth").
Meanwhile, although you didn't ask, I suggest that you make an appointment to talke with the prosecutor's office that works with your local police department. You have every right to ask why nothing is being done on the case. (It may be that it's too hard to prove).
Also, just want to let you know that you have the right to sue the alleged assailant as a civil matter. Talk to a few personal injury attorneys for more information. Some PI attorneys specialize in sexual assault of minors.
I'm happy to answer follow-up questions. If you have none, please "accept" my answer
Ask for me by name next time you visit JustAnswer.com. I'll remember you!
