SEATTLE — Recently, there has been an increase in the number of sexual assaults aboard airplanes. The FBI is taking action to bring attention to and prevent this serious, federal crime. Special Agent Bruce Reynolds from the FBI's Seattle office tells us more about the FBI's recent nationwide campaign to spotlight these assaults. The campaign hopes to make the public aware that assault is a punishable offense, inform victims that they should immediately report any incidents to the flight crew, and that an incident can be reported at any time.
