The New London County incident occurred on Friday, Feb. 2 in the town of Griswold, according to Connecticut State Police.
Posing as a police officer, 45-year-old Jonathan Brand of Norwich is said to have knocked on the door of a hotel room at the Comfort Inn located at 375 Voluntown Road, calling out that he was law enforcement.
The woman inside — who later informed police that she knew Brand from where she worked and that he was with her and her boyfriend at the hotel — partially opened the door.
That is when Brand barged in and assaulted her, police said.
While arriving officers had initially thought that Brand had weapons on him, it was revealed that he did not, and housekeepers had assumed he did because of his police disguise.
Brand was arrested, and allegedly had on him four fake IDs and multiple press badges.
He was charged with:
- Home invasion;
- Impersonating a police officer;
- Breach of peace; and
Brand’s bond was set at $500,000 and he is scheduled to appear at GA 21 in Norwich on Monday, Feb. 5.
