Unfortunately you can't force someone to report something like this. While it may be the right thing to do, you person assaulted needs to come to be ready and prepared to do something like this. Sexual assault can cause PTSD. Having to relive this event over and over to explain the stories to all different people can be draining as well as painful for the victim. The best thing you can do is to support and love them in this time. You may not fully understand what they are going through but being there as a comfort is amazing!
