EAST NEW YORK, Brooklyn (PIX11) -- A man who responded to an online ad for a 30-minute massage forced a woman to have sex with him after he lied and told her he was a police officer, NYPD said.
It happened Oct. 26, 2014, at the Linden Motor Inn at 714 South Conduit Blvd. Police released surveillance video in the case Wednesday as they asked for help finding the attacker.
The man was at the motel responding to a Craigslist ad for a half-hour massage, police said. When his massage was finished, the man identified himself as a police officer to the 25-year-old victim and ordered her to have sex with him against her will.
He displayed a gold and blue “FDA” badge, police said.
After sexually assaulting her, the man stole the woman’s cellphone and an undetermined amount of money before fleeing the scene in a black C-class Mercedez Benz.
The perpetrator is described as a black male last seen wearing a black t-shirt with yellow lettering, light blue ripped jeans and black sneakers.
Anyone who recognizes him is urged to call NYPD’s anonymous Crime Stoppers tipline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
