GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — A man who prosecutors say posed as a police officer and kidnapped, sexually assaulted and robbed prostitutes has pleaded guilty to robbery.

Nineteen-year-old Ajibola Erogbogbo of Laurel entered the plea Wednesday in federal court in Greenbelt. He faces up to 20 years in prison at sentencing June 19.

According to his plea agreement, beginning in January 2014, Erogbogbo arranged to meet women who offered sex through online ads at local hotels.

Authorities say Erogbogbo would arrive wearing a vest that said “police” and would show the women a badge and a gun. Prosecutors say he told the women they were under arrest, handcuffed them, robbed them, and in one case, sexually assaulted a woman.

Authorities say state law enforcers set up a sting and arrested Erogbogbo in February 2014.
