Thank you. It is not that the police is not doing anything, but that they are going through the process which can be slow. Allow me to explain how this works, and this may help.
1 - a call is made
2 - investigation is launched. Police and CPS each do their own investigation
3 - police reach a conclusion anywhere from 1-3 months (typical for rape
cases without physical evidence) down the line and send the information over to the county's district attorney office with a recommendation to charge or not, and the DA makes a decision to file charges or not.
The problem here is that there is no physical evidence. This makes the police move slower to send the recommendation because they want to build up their case for the DA. This means interviews with everyone, arranging them, etc. Perhaps testing what they do have (6-9 weeks sometimes). Believe me, they have him on their radar, but it may be 3-6 months before he is charged, and if he is. It is simply the way the process works, so they are actually more or less where they typically would be.
