If the frame had brake mounts under the rear chain stay and they were cut off or the bike is a true "break-less BMX " you may still have a few options
1) the front fork appears to have a hole though the fork under the crown race so you might be able to mount a "long reach calliper " type brake so you'll have a least the front brake
2) the rear triangle seat stay may be another place to mount a "long reach calliper " type brake , if there is a cross brace welded to the seat stay above the rear tire
Otherwise visit a frame builder and have them mount a couple of "brake bosses" which will allow you to mount "U-type "brakes (aka BMX brake)
Or sell the bike
Or learn to ride brake-less....this is not safe......
good luck
