Third of young women assaulted while drunk

PUBLISHED September 28, 2005

More than one in three young women say they have been sexually assaulted after getting drunk, according to a survey which also suggests that excess alcohol makes them more likely than men to be involved in fights, be arrested or be cautioned by the police.

More women also say they have been injured in an accident, ended up in hospital, got into an argument, or been robbed or lost property after excessive drinking.
