Man arrested in Boston for attempting assault while dressed as police

BOSTON (AP) — Police have arrested a man for attempting to assault a woman while dressed as a security guard in Boston.

Authorities say 26-year-old Isaiah Brown approached the victim in the city’s North End around 2:30 a.m. Friday. The victim told officers Brown said he had an important matter to discuss, and she needed to follow him.

Police say Brown led the victim a short distance then attempted to assault her. The victim was able to escape and call police.

Brown has been charged with indecent assault and battery and impersonating a police officer. It is unclear if he has an attorney.


His arraignment is scheduled for Monday in Boston Municipal Court.
