Physical evidence of a sexual assault must be collected from the person within 72 hours, though evidence can often be obtained from towels, sheets, clothes, etc. for much longer periods of time.
If you believe you have been a sexually assaulted, please visit a medical facility capable of collecting medical/legal evidence in cases of sexual assault and has specially trained staff to do so before washing yourself or your clothing. Anaheim Regional Medical Center (714-774-1450) is the only hospital in Orange County that performs sexual assault exams. You can also contact your local law enforcement agency or a crisis hotline for assistance. Having the evidence collected in this manner will help keep all your options open, but will not obligate you to any course of action. Collecting evidence can assist authorities in pursuing criminal charges if you decide to later. Transportation by IVCPD can be requested to Anaheim Regional Medical Center.
If you have changed clothing since the assault, bring the clothing you had on at the time of the assault to the hospital in a clean, sanitary container such as a clean paper grocery bag or wrapped in a clean sheet (plastic containers do not breathe, and may render evidence useless). If you have not changed clothes, bring a change of clothes, if possible, as authorities will likely keep the clothes you are wearing as evidence.
If you were sexually assaulted off campus, contact the local police department where the incident took place. The local police department will have jurisdiction over the matter.
The answer is Yes. Please contact the Title IX office to discuss support options, such as academic accommodations, campus resources available virtually, and community resources.

MYTH: Perpetrators are abusive in all of their relationships.
FACT: Perpetrators of violence have "normal" relationships, but they make a decision to single out and harm a particular person. Keep this in mind if a friend who has been abused identifies a perpetrator you "know."
MYTH: If a woman or man is being abused, their situation can’t be all that bad, if they stay in the relationship.
FACT: There are many reasons why a victim may stay in an abusive relationship. She or he may be afraid. They may feel ashamed, even though what they are going through is not their fault. While some victims are able to successfully leave their abusers, for others, leaving is extremely dangerous.
MYTH: Rape is a spontaneous act of passion.
FACT: Rapes are committed to control, humiliate, or harm another person. Many are planned in advance and most are perpetrated by someone the victim knows. Passion, lust, and arousal may be present, but they are not uncontrollable urges.
MYTH: Men can’t be raped if they don’t want to be.
FACT: Any man can be sexually assaulted. It doesn’t matter who he is, how big or strong he is, or what his sexual orientation is. Some men are sexually assaulted by women. Most are raped by men. The majority of men who rape other men consider themselves heterosexual. They rape men to exert control and cause harm and humiliation. Some men who are raped get an erection or ejaculate while being attacked. This reaction is simply a physiological response to physical contact or extreme stress. Although a perpetrator may try to convince a victim otherwise, getting an erection or ejaculating during a sexual assault or rape is not a sign of consent, pleasure, or sexual orientation.
MYTH: Some girls and guys "ask for it" by the way they dress.
FACT: No person does anything to "ask for" or deserve rape.
MYTH: Stalking is a nuisance if you ignore it, the stalker will quit.
FACT: Students may be stalked by someone they know or by a complete stranger. In either case, stalking is a serious threat to personal safety and typically escalates without intervention. Stalking episodes can last over two years.
