You may feel reluctant to report your sex assault because you were drinking or taking drugs, and you feel guilty or partly to blame. You might not remember many details to positively identify a suspect or even say with certainty that you were sexually assaulted. Perhaps there has been a time delay.
If you don’t feel ready or you don’t want to make a police report, we urge you to get any medical help you may need. If you choose to make a police report, we can potentially arrest the suspect and prevent it from happening to someone else. There are different options available to report a sex assault, including having someone else make the report for you.
See Report a Sex Crime for all of your options.
You are never to blame for being sexually assaulted.
