The witnesses would be dead, so I believe your argument cannot be substantiated.
There has been a fair amount of study of sexual predation. Standard recommendation is to leave. And while it's been found that some exhibitionists graduate to assault or rape, in this case the perpetrator was sitting down and, according to the report, did not appear to make any overt gesture consistent with an attack.
