BROOKLINE – A woman who told police that she was raped in her home last week has now been charged with prostitution, according to police.

The man she accused of assaulting her has been charged with robbery, police said.

T. W, 36, of ______, has been charged with false report to law enforcement, and prostitution, both class A misdemeanors, according to Police Chief Thomas Goulden. She is also facing charges of being an unlicensed massage therapist and running an unlicensed massage establishment, which are violations, Goulden said.

In addition, police have charged Anthony G. Brown, 30, of Manchester, is being charged with robbery, a class A felony, and prostitution, a class A misdemeanor.

“Mr. Brown came to the residence for a massage that turned into consensual sexual activity,” the police chief said. “What happened after that is under investigation.”

Goulden said police contacted Williams and expect her to turn herself into police today.

Brookline police have been unable to reach Brown but faxed a warrant for his arrest to the Manchester Police Department, Goulden said.

Goulden said bail and an arraignment date will be set for Williams after she turns herself in to police. Arraignment will take place in Milford District Court, he added.

Williams initially told police she was raped at knifepoint in her home last week.

Goulden said investigation into the alleged rape revealed “conflicting information.” During a second interview with Williams, moreover, he said she admitted that she fabricated the sexual assault.

Goulden said Williams and Brown knew each other and police believe Brown allegedly robbed Williams.
