Quite right too. It really is none of our business.
If you had a daughter, and she were raped, I bet you would be the first to object to posts on an internet chat forum 'invading your privacy' wanting to know all the gory details?
I don't want to know the gory details I want to know if the people responsible were caught and dealt with or are still at large on my street.
I don't know why you think it appropriate to start talking about hyperthetical daughters getting raped but having nearly been raped myself (I got badly beaten up fighting him off. Plus, before anybody starts with the popular blame the victim rubbish, I was stone cold sober, it was 5pm in the afternoon and I was not "provocatively dressed") I can tell you I would indeed be uncomfortable to know it was being discussed on an internet forum such as this (particularly with the usual level of "She must have been asking for it" rubbish) but if it helped catch the person responsible or warned others who to look out for then it would be a good thing.
