CHICAGO, IL – A Chicago man is being held on a $1,000,000 bail after being charged with criminal sexual assault against his 17-year-old stepdaughter. Razak Brimah, according to the Cook County Circuit Court poses a “real and present threat” to the young girl. He was charged for allegedly sexually assaulting his stepdaughter at their home while her mother had been working out of state as a nurse in a COVID-19 unit.
“According to Cook County prosecutors, the victim had cooked dinner for Brimah when he began to rub her thigh. He then grabbed the teen, put her on his lap and continued touching her,” WTTW reported. “The teen told him to stop or she would tell her mother, and then went to her bedroom. Brimah followed her there and pinned her down as he proceeded to undress and sexually assault her, prosecutors said. After the assault, prosecutors said the victim used her phone to record a conversation between her and Brimah in which she asked him what to do if she became pregnant.”
