How likely is it for the girl's rapist to be someone she trusted?

This is the first time I've never spoken to a rape victim. My friend is an older lady in her mid 40's.

The guy that raped her at a party after their HS graduation wasn't a stranger at all. He was her closest friend from their early childhood years. A month later or so, the guy couldn't handle what he did and hung himself.

So when it comes to rape, how likely is it for the woman to have known and trusted her rapist?

    If you know someone who has been raped, there are ways you can help.

    • Be supportive. Do not blame the victim for what has happened to her.

    e Listen. Respond to what she says she needs - not what you think

    she needs.

    • Support her in calling a rape crisis center and getting medical

    attention.

    • Offer to help make phone calls for her and drive her to the hospital,

    police station and rape crisis center.

    o Stay with her during the medical examination and interviews, if

    she wants.

    • Do not tell her when she will be "over" the rape.

    I don't know really know

    All I can say is, I think it takes guts to want to just start raping a woman like that, I would think that he would be too nervous.
