Coral Springs Police arrested Shane Braslow, 22, of Coral Springs on April 9, 2012, after he grabbed a female jogger and tried to force her into his vehicle. A detective assigned to the Child Abuse/Sex Crimes Unit recalled a closed case from July 2011 where a male suspect in a black Honda approached an 11 year old girl in the 2900 block of NW 87 Terrace and tried to lure her into his vehicle. The male suspect was also engaged in a lewd act when he was speaking to the young girl.
The detective’s tenacity and perseverance paid off and he was able to connect Shane Braslow to the July 2011 incident.
Braslow was charged with additional counts of lewd or lascivious exhibition and luring or enticing a child.
Braslow is described as a white male, 6 feet tall weighing 155 pounds with brown eyes and short brown hair. Detectives are asking for anyone who may have been approached by a man matching Braslow’s description driving a black 2 door Honda Civic to contact Detective Mitter of the Coral Springs Police Department Child Abuse/Sex Crimes Unit at 954-346-1300.
