A friend of mine was sexually assaulted by two men early on Saturday morning.  It happened while she was staying at a friend's house.  She has identified the men -- they are family members of the friend she was staying with, but she seems reluctant to press charges since she was able to fight them off.  12 years ago she was drugged and raped so this assault has opened those emotional wounds as well.  She is understandably still in shock.  Please pray for her.

That is basically what I told her.  Guaranteed she is not the first and won't be the last woman abused by these men.

As a good friend, you better report it, do her that favor....Once the police start questioning her, they will get the truth from her , they deal with this type of abuse many times so they know the signs..........

I totally agree, but as she was telling me about it today I could tell the last thing she needed was another man bossing her around.  I suspect that she will be ready to talk to the police tomorrow.
