It is your choice whether or not to report the assault. Many survivors identify feeling empowered by their decision to report. Some survivors report the crime in an effort to reduce the likelihood that the offender will assault again and some report for reasons of justice. Although it is recommended to report the assault as soon as possible, an individual can make a report at any time after the assault has occurred.
