Record number of sexual assault victims seek help
A record number of sexual assault victims are seeking help at Kansas City area hospitals this month.
According to the Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault, or MOCSA, they were called to hospitals 70 times so far in May.
“It’s very alarming. It’s a huge cause for concern for us,” says Alex Strotheide with MOCSA.
That number exceeds the previous record of 64 calls in August of 2009. In May of 2010, MOCSA was called to hospitals 45 times
