Reporting an incident to the police
You should report your experience to the police as soon as possible after the incident. Police will be more likely to be able to get the evidence they need to make an arrest if you talk to them about what happened while the event is still clear in your memory. The police will interview you about what happened and ask you to have your doctor or another health professional collect medical evidence of the assault.
Reporting the incident to the police does not mean you have to seek prosecution. However, the police will be able take action to keep other students and community members safe.
