Members of the local Guardian Angels are trying to help women defend themselves against attackers. They are hosting a free self-defense class this weekend. “There are a lot of rape cases here in Central Oregon. ” David Hart with the Guardian Angels here in Central Oregon says their mission is to prevent crime. A little over a year ago, they patrolled the Bend parks when there was a rash of homeless people getting attacked; and this Saturday they are presenting a free self-defense class in hopes of preventing future rape cases. Hart says when there isn't a lot of crime to stop, they have other important projects too: “We put our attention more on helping elderly, shut-ins, who can’t afford their heating bills in the winter. We bring them firewood, we work with some youth programs, anti-drugs things like that.” The Self Defense workshop is from 2 to 4:30 on Saturday at the Bend Aiki Martial Arts on 18th Avenue next to our studios for Combined Communications.
