Traffic Agent Posed as Police Officer to Force Women to Have Sex, NYPD Says

EAST NEW YORK — An off-duty NYPD traffic agent was arrested Friday after allegedly posing as a police officer and threatening women with arrest if they didn’t perform oral sex on him, according to police and prosecutors.

Isaiah Delvalle, 27, of East New York, approached a woman on Pine Street and Wortman Avenue some time between Oct. 15 and Nov. 23 2015, asking her for oral sex in exchange for money, detectives said.

She agreed, but he displayed a badge from a chain around his neck and told the woman she would be arrested if she didn’t perform the act for free, according to court papers.

Another woman told detectives that on Jan. 11, Delvalle asked her for oral sex in exchange for money. She agreed, but he also threatened her with arrest if she made him pay, telling her he was a police officer, flashing a badge and a walkie talkie and opening his jacket to show what appeared to be a gun in his waistband, officials said.

Both women performed the sex act, police said.

The second woman provided police with a DNA sample from Delvalle, according to a criminal complaint.

A month later, an undercover police officer followed him and took a straw from his drink and officials matched the DNA to the January incident.

Delvalle faces charges including first-degree criminal impersonation, first-degree criminal sex act, criminal possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of marijuana, according to police. 

He was released on $10,000 bail on Saturday, records show.

Attorney information for Delvalle was not immediately available.
