    For the last few days at least, it seems that every one of these incidents you report happens between midnight and 5am.

    As well as mapping these incidents by location, it might be useful to map them by time of day or night.

    If the trend is as observed, then most problems can maybe be avoided simply by not walking the streets in the dead of night. Sound advice anyway?
