Sexual assault victim: 'Don't let it consume you'

Nineteen-year-old Lillian Constantine was making her way home from an evening out when Ashraf Miah attempted to rape her.

She recorded the incident on her phone, which led to the conviction of Miah.

In her first broadcast interview, Ms Constantine explained to Today's Justin Webb why she wanted other victims of sexual assault to come forward.

"Don’t let it consume you, don't let it define you. The whole process can feel toxic and overwhelming," she said. "You will find closure...you are not in the wrong."
