PARK SLOPE - Community members in Park Slope and Sunset Park are taking matters into their own hands after police say there have been at least nine attacks on women in the area since March.

On Wednesday, residents marched in unity against violence in their neighborhood.  Now, the Guardian Angels have come into the area to help police patrol the streets.

Police have released three sketches of three different suspects in connection with the assaults.  The Guardian Angels spent today passing out fliers about the sexual predators allegedly behind the attacks.

The Guardian Angels say they will be patrolling the streets of Park Slope and surrounding communities at all hours of the day and night, and will stay as long as it is necessary to help catch the suspects.
