Don't understand how their can be a three hour window for the assault to have taken place. Surely the victim would have a more accurate timetable?

He may have been knocked unconscious, or at least dazed, so if found by someone else, it would have been between the time he was last sighted and the time he was discovered/reported it, unless he could provide a precise time.
