If you have been, or think you have been, sexually assaulted:

1. If you are in immediate danger CALL 911.

2. Go to a safe location away from the perpetrator.

3. Preserve all evidence of the assault. Do not bathe, wash your hands or brush your teeth.
If you are still where the crime occurred, do not clean, or straighten up, or remove anything from the crime scene.

5. 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 health care personnel to conduct a sexual assault forensic examination 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.
