Man accused of targeting teen boys now under arrest

-

The 30-year-old man accused of posing as a woman on social media in order to target teen boys is now under arrest.

Philadelphia police say Brandon Speach was taken into custody on Wednesday night without incident, and it happened with help from the public and media.

Authorities said Speach posed as a woman, and then asked for and received, nude and explicit images and video from victims.

He was accused of targeting 14 to 16-year-old boys between 2013 and 2016.

Speach was well-known in North Philadelphia. Neighbors told FOX 29 News he had worked in schools and day cares over the years.

Police say they will send an update with new charges and a new mugshot when they’re available.
