SAPR – If you have been assaulted

If you have been sexually assaulted:

  • Go to a safe location away from the attacker.
  • Contact a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC), Uniformed Victim Advocate (UVA), Victim Advocate (VA), or Healthcare Provider (HCP) for restricted/unrestricted reporting.
  • Preserve all evidence of the assault. Do not bathe, wash your hands or brush your teeth. Do not clean or straighten up the crime scene.
  • Seek medical care as soon as possible. Even if you do not have any visible physical injuries, you may be at risk of becoming pregnant or acquiring a sexually transmitted disease.
  • Ask the healthcare provider to conduct a sexual assault forensic examination (SAFE) to preserve forensic evidence.
  • If you suspect you have been drugged, request that a urine sample be collected.
  • Write down, tape or record by any other means all the details you can recall about the assault and your assailant.
