A friend of mine called the police department in Oshawa this week to report an attempted attack on herself. She was asked what time it occured and she said "about 30 minutes ago" The woman on the phone told her that it was too late to do anything about it and that next time she should call right away. My friend gave tried to give a description of the men involved, but was cut off. Her name and phone number was not taken.

Why is this? Would this only be investigated if she were to be seriously hurt? What if this was not a one time thing, maybe someone else will be attacked and not be so lucky to get away. I can not believe that no one was interested in hearing what happened.
