Some basic advice to follow if you have been the victim of a sexual assault

  • Always take somebody sympathetic with you when dealing in person with any authorities.
  • Do a brief summary of your case (try to put it on a single paragraph.) It will help you explain it to others and get support.
  • Keep a detailed account of everything that has happened to you in date order, and any further intimidation or sighting your attacker.
