In Denver, police are warning the public about sexual assaults that have happened to men in Lower Downtown over the past six years, and are encouraging possible victims to come forward.
According to a recent article on Fox 31 Denver, Denver Police believe the perpetrator is a man, who may be a driver, who sexually assaults males in his vehicle. It’s been happening since 2013 and they believe he is targeting men walking alone late at night.
Now, they’re asking for the public’s help, and they’re encouraging victims to speak up and link with the department though Seek Then Speak.
Seek Then Speak is a sexual assault reporting tool that helps survivors gather information, explore their options, and then reach out for help from victim advocates, like a rape crisis center, or, if they are ready, begin filing a report with law enforcement.
Seek Then Speak allows users to remain anonymous, and survivors can connect via SeekThenSpeak.org, by downloading the Seek Then Speak app, or by calling 888-865-9863. It’s multilingual and was created in partnership between Voice, a controlled conversational AI technology company, and End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI), the nation’s leading nonprofit dedicated to improving criminal justice responses to sexual assault.
