Get emergency medical treatment and have evidence of the assault collected and preserved
After an incident of sexual misconduct or relationship violence, the victim should consider seeking medical attention as soon as possible. In California, evidence may be collected even if you chose not to make a report to law enforcement. Medical care is usually provided by a doctor and/or a sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) in a hospital emergency department or medical clinic. In circumstances of sexual assault, if victims do not opt for forensic evidence collection, health care providers can still treat injuries and take steps to address concerns of pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted disease.
File a criminal report with the police
Irvine Police Department (IPD)
An incident of sexual misconduct or relationship violence can be reported to the Irvine Police Department at any time, 24-hours a day/7-days. Law enforcement officials will assist you in filing an official complaint, collecting evidence and recording statements for a criminal case.
