No bail for cop accused of making sexual advances on 10-year-old
A police officer with the NYPD’s building maintenance unit was arrested Thursday morning for making sexual advances on an acquaintance’s 10-year-old daughter while babysitting her, prosecutors said.
Shaun Frazier was babysitting the girl and her 5-year-old brother on Sept. 5 while their mother was working an overnight security shift at a hospital, according to prosecutors. The 10-year-old girl, after going to sleep, got up and went into the kitchen, where Frazier was allegedly licking a pair of the child’s underwear.
“He asked if he could lick her underwear,” said assistant district attorney Gwen Barnes. The girl ran to her room, Barnes said. “He later asked her to come into the room where he was on the mom’s bed, where he was masturbating.”
Frazier, who was not accused of touching the child, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, though prosecutors said he could be hit with more charges at a later date.
Frazier allegedly asked the child if she wanted to see him ejaculate. The girl once again fled and ran to her room, where Frazier followed her and took her cellphone as well as the landline, so she could not inform her mother of what happened, prosecutors said.
Frazier is a five-year veteran of the NYPD and before that, served as a court officer. He nodded at officers in Brooklyn Supreme Court before his arraignment.
Barnes requested $10,000 bail in the case, arguing that Frazier is a flight risk. Frazier’s defense attorney, Daniel Servino, argued that bail was unnecessary and that his client had to take care of his mother, who has dementia.
Supreme Court Justice Donald Leo released Frazier without setting bail.
