Residents march against series of sexual attacks

PARK SLOPE - Residents and community organizations in Park Slope are rallying this evening to bring an end to the neighborhood's recent string of sexual attacks. Joined by New York City Councilwoman Sara Gonzalez (D-District 38), residents are marching in Sunset Park to raise awareness for abusive sexual crimes, especially the 10 attacks that have been reported since March. "I think the main goal of this is to raise awareness that this is not acceptable behavior," said Crystal Castro, of social justice group Uprose. Police have increased their presence in the area, and sketches featuring suspects have made their way to subway stations and lamp posts throughout the community.Police increase presence in Park Slope after string of sex assaults
