Registered sex offender charged in kidnapping of 2 young girls caught on video

Cambridge, Massachusetts – The Cambridge Police Department has made an arrest involving the kidnaping of two sisters in the Pleasant Street area on February 14, 2019.

At 7:25AM Saturday, Cambridge Police Officers patrolling the Central Square area, placed 52-year-old Lionel Ivan Brathwaite Jr, (homeless) of Cambridge, under arrest on a Cambridge District Court warrant for two counts of kidnapping. The warrant was issued on February 15th resulting from the ongoing investigation into the kidnapping of two sisters in the Pearl Street area on February 14th.

On Valentine’s Day, the two sisters (who are pre-teenagers) were walking home together at approximately 5:15-5:30 p.m. and were reportedly approached by a man they had not seen before in the area of Pleasant Street and Auburn Street. The suspect asked for directions and grabbed one of the sisters by the arm. He then proceeded to walk with the sisters down several streets and then stopped at what was believed to be Salem Street. After asking the sisters if they wanted to go down an alley with him, the sisters said no, the suspect stated he was sorry and he then removed his hands from one of the sisters.

They both then ran towards their home. The suspect was described as a black male, approximately 40-50 years old, approximately 5’8”. He reportedly smelled of alcohol and was wearing a black jacket and beanie hat.

Separately, a mother of a 17-year-old daughter, reported yesterday that on February 3rd an unknown man had followed her daughter home from Central Square. The same man reportedly attempted to approach her daughter a year ago at her work and while she was walking home from school.
