After an assault in Boston's South End, WBZ spoke with Stephanie Trilling, our director of community awareness and prevention services, about what people can do to look out for one another in the face of all sorts of sexual violence: "You can call the police, you can get someone else involved, you can check in with someone after the fact and say 'Hey, I saw that interaction, are you OK?'"
