Hastings Police: Sexual assaults are not on the rise
In Hastings if you read through the morning police report on a daily basis you would notice more and more "sexual assaults" being reported.
But the police told us the increase isn't what you might think and they point out that the term "sexual assault" is a more far-reaching term than most imagine.
According to Sergeant Bill Mann, "sexual assault" doesn't automatically mean "rape." Most reports are more in the category of groping or "inappropriate touch."
And according to police, the rate of the reports is pretty normal stating that there is no real dynamic increase in recent weeks and months.
