When Sexual Violence Occurs

When sexual violence or intimate partner violence has occurred, it is very important to preserve any potential evidence by not showering or straightening up the crime scene. In case of rape, the individual will be accompanied to the Rape Trauma Unit at Aria Hospital for immediate medical attention. The individual is apprised of all options for filing a complaint, both on campus and off, including the right to report fully to the Philadelphia Police, to file an anonymous report with the Philadelphia Police, or to file no report with the Philadelphia Police. The choice is solely up to the individual and remains an option even if the victim chooses not to go to the hospital. The Public Safety Officer will outline the procedures and potential consequences of all these options.
