Pulis Ingles: Male factor vs Malefactor

I have seen several reports using the word “male factor” when describing a male criminal or suspect. In my understanding, many of our colleagues may have a false grasp of the meaning of the word they were using in the report. 

Example, “two male factor and one female was arrested by …”

In the above example, we can see the problem. So, in the Best interest of our organization, here’s the definition of the words Male Factor and Malefactor and see the difference:

Male factor – adjective

(Reproduction, medicine) – Any cause of infertility due to deficiencies in sperm quantity, function, or motility–ability to move that make it difficult for a sperm to fertilize an egg under normal conditions

– one who commits an offense against the law; especially: felon  – one who does ill toward another
