How to report rape?
If you’re a victim of rape, it’s essential that you don’t throw away or wash your clothes. Getting rid of your clothes can destroy forensic evidence that can help convict a defendant.
To report an incident of rape, you should call the police as soon as possible. In the event of an emergency, you should contact them on 999. However, if the call isn’t an emergency, you should call them on 101.
However, suppose you’re a victim of rape. In that case, it’s important to consider reporting the incident to medical professionals as you may be at risk of sexually transmitted diseases/ infections.
- NHS on 111.
- A doctor or practice nurse at your local GP surgery.
