Sexual Assault Prevention

Sexual Assault Information

The crime of sexual assault, or rape as it is more commonly referred, is one of the most violent and least reported crimes in the United States.

  • Sexual assault is a crime that robs victims of their internal safety and trust.
  • Statistics indicated that fewer than 20% of sexual assaults are reported to the police
  • Being forced into having sex-even if it's by someone you know is assault, and it's a crime. Sexual contact means any intentional touching of the intimate parts of another, clothed or unclothed, without consent.
  • This is a crime that crosses all socioeconomic, racial, gender and age barriers. Today, men, woman, and children are all at risk of being sexually assaulted. Statistics show that the crime of sexual assault occurs mostly with woman. 
  • Acquaintance Rape is when you have sex against your will by someone you know. Examples: boyfriend, girlfriend, relative, friends, and even neighbors.
  • Sexual assault of males may be the most under reported crimes in the country. One reason for this is that American males resist the notion that they are susceptible to being victimized. 
  • Nothing you do, say, or wear gives a person the right to assault you- sexually or otherwise.
