The man who has allegedly been stalking Miss USA and Connecticut native Erin Brady was arrested at a Brooklyn, New York homeless shelter after detectives identified him through a YouTube clip and found a photo of her in his pocket, police sources say.  
 
Police learned the first name of the 28-year-old suspect when he went to Brady's building to see her and entered it into the visitor's log. 
 
They did a social media search using the name, Lanre, and found a YouTube clip showing a person that matched the individual seen on surveillance cameras at Brady's building. 

 

The YouTube clip apparently lists both the suspect's first and last name, and police were able to use that information to track him to the Brooklyn homeless shelter. 
 
Lanre Orimabogunje, 28, was apprehended at the shelter and charged with stalking. 
 
Information on an attorney for him wasn't immediately available. 
 
Brady, a graduate of Portland High School, will be competing for Miss Universe.
