Why do violent crime and sexual offences come under the same heading on local crime figurers?

I don't see slapping someone outside a pub the same as putting your hand up a ladies skirt? :oops:

Putting your hand up a woman's skirt is a violent crime.

it may well descend into violence if somebody put their hand up my skirt uninvited....

Most sexual offences will also amount to an assault, which is by its nature an offence of violence.
