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.
