It’s scary enough being the victim of a robbery at all, but sometimes it can happen more than once. You may become a victim as part of bullying, or even harassment. Or you may be targeted because of your identity – perhaps your race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity, or because of your disability – which is known as hate crime.
So if you’ve been affected by the crime, whether you’re upset, scared, sad or angry, there are people you can talk to and who can help you cope with what’s happened. And if you decide you want to report the crime to police, it will be taken seriously.
