Male Victims of Intimate Partner Violence

Postby Jack Flash » 30 May 15, 7:20 am

Almost half of male victims of domestic abuse are threatened with arrest. 21% are arrested - http://www.sascv.org/ijcjs/pdfs/carolet ... l5iss1.pdf

According to George and Yarwood (2004), police have threatened 47% of male victims of intimate partner violence with arrest. George and Yarwood also found that the police ignored 35% of male victims and 21% were actually arrested instead of the female perpetrators. This is due to the disbelief that a woman could not have been the perpetrator of this type of crime and the male must be intimidating the woman to the point that the woman is attacking in self-defense.
