Posing as a Police Officer, Sexual Assault Suspect Tricked Victim Into Stripping

Disturbing new details regarding last Friday’s sexual assault in the North End came out in court at the arraignment on Monday.

Prosecutors said that security guard Isaiah Brown, 26 years old, posed as a police officer on Hanover Street and made the femaie victim show I.D. as she was returning to her apartment around 2:30 a.m. on Friday, November 17th.

He then asked her strip her clothes so he could “check for weapons.” Thinking he was a police officer, the victim pulled down her pants exposing her underwear when the suspect tried to grope and kiss her. She then screamed and ran away. The incident happened at 425 Hanover Street, near the intersections of Hanover Ave. and Salutation St.

Police have video of Brown following the victim and arrested him on Saturday, November 18th. Brown is charged with four counts of indecent assault and battery, two counts of assault and battery and impersonating a police officer. He was held on $5,000 bail and will wear a GPS device if released.

Brown denied the charges in court, but said he followed the woman from Faneuil Hall to the woman’s residence in Boston’s North End. He lives in Randolph works as a security guard in Boston with Northeast Security.

  1. Thank you for arresting this creep of our streets, now if only we could have a police car visibility up and down our streets at those hours.

  2. Thank you for also posting his photo. I had not been able to find it. Women in the neighborhood and surrounding areas will be able to recognize him now.

  3. He deserves everything coming to him ,,, it’s men like that that make the good security guards look bad …. and trust me there are a lot of security guards that actually care that people are safe !!!!

  4. He asked her to take off her clothes for a strip search…in the middle off the street?? And she did! I think there is more to the story.

    If it’s that easy to get woman to disrobe, the North End is going to be full of perverted security guards.

  5. Omg Maybe she was drinking Maybe she was naive She certainly not street smart your right maybe this is not the real story In the meantime i keep saying we need police patrolling mostley on the outskirts of the north end like commercial north Washington so other sickos can get away This is scary and disgraceful

  6. Someone who is drunk, drugged or naive would take down pants at 2:30 a.m. for a guy, police or otherwise. Poor thing. Upon reflection she may realize how utterly dangerous the situation was. I repeat myself often and I will continue to do so….what is a woman doing out ALONE at 2:30 a.m. ? Students are asked to travel in pairs. One would think that ladies would adapt this strategy .

  7. Something else happened is going on here. Who would believe that a police officer is asking them to pull their pants down in public?
