Get to a safe place. Call 911 (U.S.) to report a sexual assault or an attempted sexual assault as soon as possible after the crime.

If the offense has recently happened: if possible, keep the clothes you were wearing and don’t wash them – the police may need them as evidence for the investigation. Try not to shower, as there may be evidence which the police can use.

National Sexual Assault Hotline, 800-656-HOPE (4673). You can also chat with a trained hotline worker on the National Sexual Assault Online Hotline.

National Domestic Violence Hotline, 800-799-SAFE (7233) or 800-787-3224 (TTY)
