KSNV coverage of crime reported on the Las Vegas Strip, June 3, 2011.

Metro Police arrested a 32-year-old Las Vegas man Thursday for allegedly impersonating a police officer to coerce a woman into having sex with him.

According to an arrest report, Douglas Brian Irvin Jr. responded to an online advertisement for a $180 sensual body rub. A masseuse with the stage name “Isabella” said she agreed to meet with “Mark,” later identified as Irvin, on May 15 at a room at the Hooters hotel-casino, police said.

Once in the room, Isabella said Irvin began to sexually assault her, according to the report.

As Isabella told Irvin to stop, he offered her $10,000 to have sex with him, according to the report. Isabella said she agreed, but said she wanted the money up front and told Irvin he would have to wear a condom, according to the report.

Irvin told Isabella he didn’t have condoms and he would have to go downstairs to buy them, the report said. Irvin then allegedly displayed a laminated identification card with the word “police” on it.

He told Isabella he was a vice detective and that “she was in lots of trouble,” the report said, adding that she could either have sex with him or go to jail.

Isabella said she thought Irvin was a police officer and that his demeanor was “very cop like,” the report said. Isabella told police she was afraid of being arrested so she agreed to have sex with Irvin.

During the sexual encounter, Irvin allegedly took a photo of her, the report said. Afterward, he left the room and told Isabella “he had people watching the room,” police said.

Irvin and Isabella exchanged text messages over the next couple of days, the report said. Isabella was upset about not “getting her money” and about Irvin “pretending to be a vice cop,” police wrote in the report.

Authorities found Irvin through a cell phone trace when he checked in with his parole officer. His criminal history wasn’t known.

Police interviewed Irvin, who told authorities multiple accounts of what happened. He allegedly admitted to having sex with Isabella, first saying it was consensual, then later that she forced him to perform a sex act on her, according to the report.

Officials found a laminated police identification card on him, the report said. Police also checked Irvin’s cell phone and found several photos of him in various police uniforms and a photo of a police ID card identifying him as a “special agent.”

Irvin was arrested on charges of impersonating a police officer, oppression under color of law, coercion, five counts of sexual assault and two counts of violating parole. He is being held at the Clark County Detention Center without bail.

    That's funny I caught the "Stiffed" part I agree this whole thing sounds like a prearranged sexual meeting and it wasn't assault until she didn't get paid. LOL They text each other for days afterwards ha ha ha
    His lawyer needs to say yeah we want a trial and we also want her criminal history as well.There's no way this guy goes to trial by jury.
