If you are a victim of a sexual assault and in immediate danger, please call 911.
Go to a safe place and call someone you trust for support. You can also call the Lonoke County Safe Haven at 501-941-4357.
Do not shower, eat, drink, smoke, comb your hair, urinate, douche, or change clothes before going to the emergency room. Valuable evidence of the assault remains on your body and clothes. However, if you have already done these things, please don’t let this stop you from seeking medical care. If you have changed clothes, place the clothes you were wearing during the assault in a paper bag and take them to the hospital with you.
If you believe you were given a date rape drug, wait to urinate until you arrive at the hospital. However, if you can’t wait, collect your first urine in a clean container with a lid and take it to the emergency room or police station with you. Also, be sure to tell the emergency room personnel your symptoms and that you believe you were given a date rape drug so they can take the necessary samples.
