If you have just been raped you may still be in shock. Many people are not sure what to do next, and there is no right or wrong way to feel.
This is your choice, the responsibility for what happened lies with the perpetrator. By attending ‘Hackenthorpe Lodge’ DNA evidence can be captured and stored with no obligation to report whilst getting medical help.
If you want forensic evidence collected, try and avoid washing, drinking, smoking and try to not clean the place where it happened or change/wash any clothing you were wearing. Sometimes evidence can still be collected up to 72 hours later, but it is best to make contact as soon as you can.
