Consider whether you'd like to make a report to St. Olaf and/or police report. If there's any chance that you want to report your assault to an authority, now or in the future, follow these instructions.
- Do not shower or douche.
- Save the clothes you were wearing at the time of the assault in a paper bag.
- Save sheets, blankets, or anything else that may have evidence in a paper bag. Do not throw anything away or try to clean up.
- Go the emergency room where you can receive a sexual assault exam (performed by specially-trained female nurses). Such an exam can be performed up to 72 hours after an assault, but it is most successful within the first 24 hours.
- Call or email SARN to speak with an advocate at (507) 786-3777 or firstname.lastname@example.org. An advocate can meet you at the hospital to give you support and answer any questions you may have.
