I had a very close friend in university. He was pursuing me but I rejected him due to religious difference since there are a lot of barriers for interracial marriages. I continued to treat him nicely as a friend after this. One day, he texted me to seek help, telling me he needed someone to talk to as he was feeling down. Being a friend, I went to him but I got molested and sexually assaulted. He told me he couldn't control himself and I felt betrayed by what he did. I felt embarrassed by what happened. I wanted to tell somebody about it but one, I didn't have the courage to do so. Two, I really cared for him as a friend back then and I knew this incident would affect his reputation a lot. He promised me he would take responsibility for what he did and with that promise, I decided to keep those pain to myself, not telling anyone about it. I didn't disagree or agree with his vow to marry me in the future since after that incident, I seriously have no idea whether I have the courage to date or be close with any other guy again. After he went overseas for further education, he treated me badly. He would insult me over and over again which made me feel so stupid for keeping what he did a secret. He told me recently that he was engaged and he had since blocked me on all social media.
So, my question is it had been almost a year since he sexually assaulted me. Can I still take actions after so long? What is the best way of taking actions against him if I want to keep my identity as low profile as possible due to the fact that I'm still a student. How can I prove that I have been sexually assaulted since there was no witness back then? Will chat records be sufficient to prove what really happened? What can I do if he denies all allegations against him during trial?
