REPORTING A SEXUAL ASSAULT

If you have been a victim of a sexual assault, you have the right to make a report to law enforcement where the sexual assault happened. Please know that you are never required to make a report to law enforcement. If you would like to talk with an advocate about your rights or options for reporting, please call Central MN Sexual Assault Center’s 24-hour phone line at 320-251-4357.  A Sexual Assault Advocate from CMSAC can accompany you to make a report to law enforcement if the assault happened in CMSAC’s four-county area of Stearns, Benton, Sherburne, or Wright counties (see list of law enforcement agencies below for contact information). *Please know that you always have the right to request an advocate be present with you during a report or interview with law enforcement.*
