the article got it partly right - but - gecko is right too.
3 out of 4 of my abuse situations - ALL of which were ongoing, repeated events - were at the hands of people i knew and who were assumed to be safe (home, school, scouts.) only once was it a stranger (fitting room of a clothing store) - and then "only" one-off.
