A trained paramedic charged with attacking a Coral Springs jogger last year is facing new federal charges after investigators said they found videos of him engaging in inappropriate sexual conduct online with two underage girls.
Shane Michael Braslow, 23, of Coral Springs, is back in the Broward County Main Jail after he was arrested Friday on the federal case.
In sworn court documents, federal agents said Braslow coerced and enticed two minors into sexual activity during an online chat, using a webcam and computers.
Investigators said they found two videos on Braslow's computer, which was seized from his home during the investigation of the alleged attempted kidnapping of the female jogger.
The videos both showed "two pre-pubescent girls" and appeared to be recordings of web-cam interactions between them and Braslow, U.S. Secret Service Agent Kelly Burnem wrote in a criminal complaint filed Friday.
The recordings showed a split-screen view on Braslow's computer with the two girls appearing in the top portion of the screen and Braslow exposing his penis and masturbating in his bedroom in the bottom section of the screen, according to the complaint.
Little information was provided about the girls, other than they appeared to be in a bedroom, both wore training bras and one read aloud to the other what agents said Braslow was typing with one hand while he was stimulating himself with his other hand. The girls' ages and their location was not provided.
The sworn statement includes graphic details of what the investigators said Braslow was doing.
The girls exposed their chests at Braslow's urging and they can then be heard saying "He's peeing" and "Eew," the agent wrote.
In the second video, Braslow urged the girls to expose their genitals and both did so briefly, according to court records. Investigators said he gave them other inappropriate instructions during the "chat."
One video lasted about seven minutes and 44 seconds, the other went on for about nine minutes and 19 seconds. Both appeared to have been recorded on Jan. 4, 2012, about 11:24 p.m. and 11:32 p.m.
Investigators got a search warrant for Braslow's possessions in April after a 44-year-old woman called 911 and reported a man tried to kidnap her while she was jogging about 10 a.m. in the 8900 block of Forest Hills Boulevard. The man rolled down his car window and said he was taking pictures of her to post online, then tried to grab her, police said.
The woman was able to fight off her attacker, who she said wore a dark shirt and what appeared to be some kind of badge. She ran after him and got part of the license plate number of the black Honda he drove, which led police to Braslow. Braslow, who is 6 feet tall and weighs about 155 pounds, was arrested on attempted kidnapping and battery charges after the woman identified him, police said.
Sam Halpern, the lawyer respresenting Braslow on the attempted kidnapping case in Broward Circuit Court, said he had no comment Tuesday. The assistant federal public defender representing Braslow on the latest allegations could not be contacted.
Braslow was free on $50,000 bond on the state charges until his most recent arrest Friday, court records show. A detention hearing, where a magistrate judge will decide if he could be safely released again on bond, is scheduled for Monday in federal court in Fort Lauderdale.
Braslow's Florida paramedic and emergency medical technician licenses are in limbo, state records show. Both were scheduled for renewal last month.
Coral Springs police also arrested Braslow on allegations he tried to lure an 11-year-old girl while he was masturbating in July 2011 on the 2900 block of Northwest 87th Terrace, but Broward prosecutors did not file formal charges in that case.
