Sex attacks across BK force women to change daily habits

BROOKLYN - After weeks of being terrorized by sex attacks spanning multiple communities, women in Brooklyn are changing their daily habits in an effort not to become the next victim.

Amy Goffiomahabir says she and her sister are being extra careful after 20 sexual attacks in the surrounding areas.

"We won't walk alone at night," says Goffiomahabir. "If I am walking somewhere after 11 p.m., I will actually call my dad to come outside, or I will walk with somebody.?

More and more woman have begun relying on cabs to go places, or have someone pick them up. They say they hope life will get back to normal as soon as possible.
