MINEOLA, N.Y. – Nassau County District Attorney Anne T. Donnelly announced the indictment of a Suffolk County man for allegedly attacking a woman at a Woodbury Days Inn hotel, raping her, and stealing valuables, including jewelry and cash, in April 2021. 

Isaih Giles, 26, was arraigned today before Judge Christopher Hoefenkrieg on charges including Rape in the First Degree (a B violent felony); Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree (a B violent felony); Burglary in the First Degree as a Sexually Motivated Felony (a B violent felony); Burglary in the First Degree (a B violent felony); Robbery in the Second Degree as a Sexually Motivated Felony (a C violent felony); Robbery in the Second Degree (a C violent felony); and Sexual Abuse in the First Degree (a D violent felony). The defendant pleaded not guilty and was remanded. Giles is due back in court on April 13, 2022. If convicted, the defendant faces a maximum of up to 90 years in prison. 

“Isaih Giles, an approximately six-foot-seven, 265-pound man, allegedly forced his way into the victim’s hotel room and demanded money. When she did not comply, the defendant allegedly strangled the victim, violently raped her, took her money and jewelry, and fled,” said DA Donnelly. “I urge anyone who believes they may have been the victim of Isaih Giles to contact the Nassau County Police Department’s Special Victims Squad at (516) 573-4022 and report the encounter.”

DA Donnelly said that, according to the indictment, on April 22, 2021, the defendant, at a Days Inn hotel on Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury, allegedly placed his foot in the doorway of the victim’s room to prevent the door from closing. Giles then allegedly entered the room and demanded money and jewelry. When the victim refused, the defendant allegedly strangled her, forced her to commit sexual acts and raped her. The defendant also allegedly took jewelry and money from the victim.   

Giles was arrested in the Bronx by detectives of NCPD’s Special Victims Squad on February 17, 2022.
