BROOKLYN - Police are now suspecting that the victims in a string of sexual attacks in Park Slope and around Sunset Park were all targeted because of their clothing.

At the time of the attacks, many of the victims were wearing skirts or dresses.

Women in those areas, however, are not deterred by this news, and instead say they have started to learn how to protect themselves. There is a self-defense demonstration and a rally planned for Wednesday.

Police ask anyone with information about the attacks to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS .
