You have several options. You may choose to call local police or the 911 emergency number. You can also go directly to the hospital emergency room (Saint Francis and Vassar Hospitals both have special facilities for sexual assault victims).
The Crime Victims Assistance Program’s 24 Hour Sexual Trauma Crisis & Recovery Services Hotline (845-452-7272) can provide you with support and information on your options. This agency’s staff has experience in dealing with crime victims, including adult and child victims (male and female) of sexual assault.
