CITYWIDE — Members of the NYPD’s Internal Affairs Bureau arrested a New Jersey man last week who they said impersonated a police officer and forced prostitutes to perform sexual acts on him.

Police said they arrested 32-year-old Warren Taylor, of 1275 Sawcreek Estates in Bushkill, N.J., Feb. 6. According to police, during the months of January and February Warren allegedly approached four prostitutes in the 108th and 13th precincts in a red 2010 Nissan Maxima. He would allegedly identify himself as an officer and threaten the females with arrests if they did not perform sexual acts for free, police said.

In one incident, Taylor allegedly assaulted one of the women, according to police.

Warren was charged with criminal impersonation of a police officer, criminal sex act, patronizing a prostitute, assault, forcible touching, kidnapping and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

The 108th Precinct covers Long Island City, Sunnyside and Woodside. The 13th Precinct covers the lower portion of mid-town Manhattan.

Concerned Citizen from Brooklyn says:
The accusations being made against Mr. Taylor are "alleged" why is his address being printed for the world to see showing no consideration for his family? He is being portrayed as a monster meanwhile the prostitutes in question are all acquaintances and there is no evidence proving those allegations but the word of some very questionable women. In the future you should think before printing someone's address in a public paper because it can create a dangerous situation for the people in that home.

Disgusted Reader from Queens says:
The NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau are accusing an innocent man of things that were being done by a NY City police officer named Monty Greene. When Mr. Taylor is cleared of all charges I hopes he sues NY City and all of the media outlets that put his family in danger by printing his personal business!!! SHAME ON YOU!!!
