Police Maintain Hunt For Sex Attackers


Griffith detectives are continuing investigations into a gang rape in the town on Friday, March 11, and while there are several leads, no arrests have been made.
Three young men aged 16 to 18 are being sought over the alleged attacks on two 17-year-old girls.
Griffith Community Health counsellor Stephanie Irvin says reporting sexual assaults and seeking counselling are both very important steps for victims to take.
"It's absolutely critical and it's important for the person themselves to seek assistance, so that particularly with sexual assault services, we'll give them advice to let them know that...doctors can provide them with the information if they might need medical examinations and plus the counselling," she said.
Ms Irvin says it is important for victims, their families and the community to remember who is really responsible for sexual assaults.
"Regardless of what anybody is doing, regardless of how they're dressed, whatever they're doing, what they're drinking, sexual assault itself is a crime, not what the victim is doing themselves," she said.
"I think that's what's difficult for a lot of victims to come forward, because it's one of the only crimes that I know of where a victim themselves starts blaming themselves and being guilty."..Crime Stoppers-1800 333 000.
