Acquaintance rape is described as any non-consensual sex between two or more people who know each other. Police warn it can happen between friends, family members, girlfriends and boyfriends, as well as people who just met. Appalachian State University Police warn students to trust their instincts. If you don’t feel comfortable in the situation, leave.
University Police released the following list of safety tips yesterday:
Trust your instincts. If you don’t feel comfortable in the situation leave.
Take care of yourself. Don’t put yourself in a situation where other people might have to take care of you, because they might not be there when you need them.
Be careful when inviting someone into your room or apartment or when going into someone else’s room or apartment. This is where most acquaintance rapes occur.
