If your crime has been reported you will work with the police to ensure that your attacker is arrested and charged. This will require going to the police station to make a statement and give all of the details you can remember about the crime. It is important that you mention everything that may be relevant so it may be helpful to make notes to take with you so that nothing is left out. If there was a witness to the crime then think about taking them with you so that they can give a statement as well.
The police will let you know within 5 days if your attacker is:
- Released on bail
- Set free
- Given a caution
You will then be able to follow up on this if you are not happy about the outcome, so that the case can be reviewed again.
The police can refer you to victim support, which is a free service that will give you support during the time immediately following the crime.
