    A woman named Michelle Forrest is out for a morning run at the track. A man approaches her and tries to pick her up. She says she's not interested. He ends up attacking and raping her. He is nicknamed Bigfoot. Hooker is ticked off at juries letting off rapist and thinking they are disturbed instead of criminals. At the hospital Hooker tries to get her to help him out. Hooker and the detectives butt heads about how to approach the case. Hooker believes that the detective is just out to get a promotion. Later on a man fitting the description of the rapist is picked up. He confesses and Hooker is skeptical because he had been picked up in the past for falsely admitting to crimes. There is another rape later in the day. Hooker believes Bigfoot is the one responsible. The detective tells Hooker they have their man and the rape happened too late in the day for Bigfoots pattern. Hooker goes to see Michelle and ask for help and get her back on her feet. She tells him items were returned to her from a fellow jogger. A bag belonging to Bigfoot was with her items. Hooker takes the bag to examine the contents. Ramano is on a date and takes a jog while his date is making him a drink. He sees Bigfoot looking to break into another home. He chases him, but he escapes in his car. Hooker talks to the detective about the stuff he found. He found a prescription eye glass case and the man they have in custody does not wear prescription glasses. Also, the car Ramano saw the man leave in was the same as the description other people had given. Ramano talks with the intended victim. He finds out that she gave her address and personal information to a guy on the phone. They go see Michelle and find out she did the same thing. They find Bigfoot's car at a used car lot and it's registered to Donny Pendleton who is the call screener of the show the ladies called. They decide to go to the radio station. They spot him and he takes off running. He stops him in a park and uses his baton to disarm him. He busts him. Very good episode and funny. Hooker really states his belief about victims rights and how the criminals are cuddled. Hooker and Ramano also go back and forth about the importance of fiber. Hooker likes doughnuts.moreless
