HUDSON, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A Hudson man is facing charges over the alleged sexual assault of a young girl under the age of 11. Hudson Police say the child was able to escape the man and run to her mother’s workplace without any shoes on her feet.

Police say the crime happened Sunday morning inside a State Street residence when a girl, under the age of 11, was allegedly held against her will and raped. She somehow managed to free herself and without shoes on her feet, she ran to her mother’s workplace nearby.

Officers responding to the 911 hangup call placed from the business say they found the girl crying and upset. The child was treated at Albany Medical Center and released.

Hudson Police arrested 36-year-old Jamel Brandow after a search of his State Street residence. He was arraigned on several charges: Rape in the 1st degree, Unlawful Imprisonment, Menacing (for allegeldy threatening the girl with a knife) and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

Court documents alleged that he restrained the girl using zip ties and tape and that he threatened her with a knife saying he would hurt her “really bad.”

Police say they chose to release Brandow’s mugshot because they believe he may have harmed other children as well.

“A child like this acts as bravely and courageously as she has, she likely not only prevented any conduct of this heinous nature against herself in the future, but for others as well.” said Columbia County DA Paul Czajka.

Brandow remains locked up without bail. The unidentified girl is receiving help from the Child Advocacy Center in Hudson, which is under the auspices of the Mental Health Association of Columbia & Greene Counties.
