If you are the victim of a sexual assault, remember as much as you can about the suspect. Do not wash or destroy bedding or clothing worn during the assault. Do not shower until examined and treated by a doctor at a hospital. You may go on your own to the hospital for the examination or the police can arrange transportation. If you choose to go to the doctor or hospital on your own, be sure to inform medical personnel prior to the examination that you were the victim of a rape or sexual assault. This will ensure the examination will be conducted by a forensic nurse who will collect evidence relating to the assault.
