Brooklyn Rabbi arrested for sexually abusing teens, Video

An ultra-Orthodox Jewish school principal was arrested and charged with sexual abuse after abusing several of his own students, according to police reports in Brooklyn, New York.

The Brooklyn yeshiva leader was arrested Wednesday night on a dozen counts of sexual abuse involving three teenage boys, police said.

Yoel Malik, 33, of Brooklyn had sex with one of the teenagers and ran his hand on two others, a police source said.

The teens were 14 or 15-years-old at the time of the alleged incident. Sexual assault on one child took place in a hotel, a police source said, adding that another victim fled to a different hotel after Malik started rubbing his back.
Another teenager was sexually abused in the suspect's car, on the way to school, when Malik allegedly rubbed the boy's groin through his pants.

"This is vicious gossip,"the wife of Malik, visibly shaken, Rachel, said in the family home while her husband was being questioned at the 79th Precinct police station before being charged. "He is a good man. I don’t know not what to say. I hope it's not true," she said.
In addition to the 12 counts of sexual abuse, Malik is accused of 11 counts of endangering the welfare
of a child, four counts of criminal sexual act and one count of touching by force.

He was arrested at 10:25 pm Wednesday. There was no deadline for the alleged attacks on the unidentified teens. The Yeshiva currently is not in operation due to financial problem.
Police learned of the victims of an anonymous call to the rape hotline.
The school was located in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn, New York, and was under the leadership of Satmar.
