‘Fake Subway Cop’ Arrested In Sunset Park Sex Assault Of Boy, 15

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police have arrested a man in connection with the alleged sexual assault of a 15-year-old boy in Brooklyn last week.

Sources confirm that Steven Pappas is a former sex offender who assaulted the teen in the van.

Pappas, who served five years in prison on a prior sex offense conviction, was taken into custody Thursday morning in Sunset Park in the general vicinity of the attack, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

Special Victims Detectives began pursuing Pappas  around 7:30 a.m. after a sergeant recognized him from the sketch released by police before finally catching him an hour later at 68th Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway, Kelly said.

Pappas, who is in his 50s, was recently paroled for a burglary in Manhattan in 2009.

Authorities said Pappas flashed a police badge and approached a teenager after he threw an empty bag of chips on the platform at the 53rd Street and 4th Avenue subway station in Sunset Park last Friday.

Pappas, who was dressed in civilian clothes, told the victim to come with him.

The victim complied and followed Pappas into a white van, which the suspect drove to 92nd Street and Dahlgren Place and sexually assaulted the boy, police said.

Pappas then drove the victim to 38th Street and 4th Avenue and dropped him off, police said.

Charges against Pappas are currently pending.

    Read the other side of the story. This guy might actually be doing society a favor. The stupid brat was throwing trash onto the subway tracks. The guy just gave the brat a reaming it deserved. Nothing else.

      This garbage has been in and out of prison since he was 21. Does not look like anything happened him yet in prison. Sexual offenders should not go to prison; they enjoy the anal insertions. They should be castrated, and have the rectum sealed and retrofitted with a colostomy bag.

      1. Angelica says:

        Castration has been not been proven to be a deterrent in rape. The impulse to rape is all in the Brian, they need to be lobotomized!

    I am so proud of that boy, he did an incredible job considering what he had been through.❤ I hope this can help him move fwd! I really hope they get him on so many charges he never sees the outside world again!

  5. Wally says:

    Killing him in a brutal way is too easy. I say he be tortured over the period of a year, knowing that what lies next is a horrific death at the end of the year!!!!

      Indeed –
      better yet, shoot the suspect in the head and then dump him into the East River. What a piece of garbage.

      Otherwise, way to go NYPD!

  9. Maddie says:

    GOD BLESS THE NYPD FOR CAPTURING THIS POS SO QUICKLY.

    PRIOR SEX OFFENSE ON HIS RAP SHEET.

    KEEP HIM LOCKED UP THIS TIME & THROW AWAY THE KEY.

    MY PRAYER FOR THE RECOVERY OF THIS POOR CHILD.
