BROOKLYN - Many Brooklyn women are taking extra precautions to protect themselves after a rash of recent sex assaults in the borough.

At the Center for Anti-Violence Education on 7th Street, Executive Director Tracy Hobson, says interest in the center's programs has increased more than 120 percent.

Hobson says the center teaches different physical tactics a woman can use when being assaulted. She also suggests that anyone relying on defense tools such as pepper spray should practice using the device a few times.
