Lessening The Chance Of Becoming A Victim
For the past several months North Central Florida has dealt with new reports of rape in our typically safe communities.
Two cases of sexual assault in the past two weeks near the University of Florida's campus has some female students worried about their safety.
The University of Florida's police department continues to look for the man responsible for the two cases of sexual assault near campus.
As that investigation continues, law enforcement wants to remind everyone of the steps they can take to reduce their risk of becoming a victim.
One of the easiest ways to improve safety is to avoid walking alone and limit distractions like using a cellphone or listening to an mp3 player.
