Four in ten people who attended a Sexual Assault Treatment Unit in Dublin last year, did not report the attack to Gardaí.

319 people were treated at the clinic at the Rotunda Hospital in 2018.

According to the Irish Independent, they ranged in age from 14 to over 70. While care was provided for six young people who were under 14.

40 percent of patients opted not to report the crime but 33 decided to securely store forensic evidence at the unit.

75 percent of patients attended within seven days of the alleged sexual assault.

More than 80 percent of the incidents happened between 8pm and 8am.

193 of the attacks were reported to have happened in Dublin.
