Report A Sexual Assault
If you are the survivor of sexual assault, you can report the incident online if:
- You are not in danger
- The person who assaulted you is not present
- There is no evidence present that may be collected by police (blood, semen, saliva, etc.). Evidence can be collected for up to 12 days after the sexual assault has occurred.
- You have access to a private email address, to which the suspect does not have access
You should not file a sexual assault report online if:
- You are in danger
- The sexual assault just happened, or the person who assaulted you is nearby
- You were also the victim of personal violence, or the person who assaulted you is an intimate partner
- You are injured or require medical attention
- You do not have access to a private email address
If any of the above are true, call 9-1-1 in the case of an emergency, contact the non-emergency line at 1-519-631-1224, or attend St. Thomas Police headquarters to have an officer take your report.
Filing a false police report is a crime.
