What is Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is a sexual act to which the victim does not consent. In Singapore, sexual assault may include the following offences:

  • Rape;
  • Sexual assault by penetration;
  • Sexual penetration of minor;
  • Sexual grooming of minor;
  • Sexual abuse and exploitation of child or young person;
  • Procurement of sexual activity with person with mental disability;
  • Outrage of modesty.
 

The Police take all reports of sexual assault cases seriously. If you are a victim of sexual assault or know of someone who is, report the incident to the Police. You may report the case regardless of when it happened. The information you give to the Police could help bring a criminal to justice and prevent further harm to other persons.

The Police adopt a victim-centric approach in our investigation process. There are also processes in place to support victims as fully as possible, if the perpetrator is prosecuted and if you are required to testify in court should the perpetrator claim trial.

The pamphlets below, which come in English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil, provide information on the investigation process that a victim or witness of sexual assault case may undergo after reporting the case to the Police. They also provide a list of support in place if a victim or witness of sexual assault case is required to testify in court.
