CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Time and time again, attempted abductions have been captured across the country on surveillance video.

In Cleveland a few months ago, a 6-year-old was abducted and sexually assaulted. The little girl was abducted from her home on West 104th, very early on a Saturday morning. She was dropped off 17 hours later on Lyric Avenue -- a street 30 blocks away.

The unfortunate situation was enough to prompt a new class in an atypical learning environment. For this class, girls need a keen sense of awareness, tennis shoes, and a quick eye. Find out how young girls in Cleveland are learning how to escape and survive tonight at 11 p.m.
