Bakersfield College Department of Public Safety is holding a rape aggression defense training program next month.

The class is open to all female students, staff, and faculty and will be 12 hours spread over three Fridays in June.

Each day over the three day class, students will be taught various defense techniques they can use in their defense if they are ever placed in a position in which they are needed.

More than six weeks after an attempted rape was reported at BC, no suspect has been arrested, according to Bakersfield Police.
