A Brooklyn man was arraigned before Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Jill Konviser, charged with a first-degree criminal sexual act, second-degree assault, first-degree sexual abuse, second-degree robbery, forcible touching, second-degree rape, endangering the welfare of a child and related charges. Miguel James, 42, is held without bail and ordered to return to court on August 10, 2022. 

According to an investigation by the District Attorney’s office, on May 27, 2022, at around 2 a.m., in the vicinity of St. Marks Avenue near East New York Avenue, James offered a 52-year-old woman a ride home while she was walking. The woman declined, after which James left his black Acura and pushed her to the ground, forcing her to perform a sex act. The man then left the scene in his car. Fifteen minutes later, on St. Marks Avenue and Howard Avenue, James allegedly spotted the victim again, sexually assaulted her once more and stole her cell phone. 

The victim was taken to Brookdale hospital where she was treated for her injuries. 

Following an investigation, James was arrested on June 1, 2022, and was additionally charged with raping a 13-year-old girl on September 8, 2021. The victim’s friend was an acquaintance of the defendant.
