Rabbi accused of sexually abusing students

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The NYPD arrested the rabbi of a Brooklyn Yeshiva for allegedly having sexual relations with several students.

Yoel Malik, 33, of Brooklyn, is accused of sexual abusing three, teenage male students.

Malik, a member of the ultra-Orthodox community, reportedly had sex with one student and is accused of rubbing two others.

He was arrested late Wednesday.

According to the NY Daily News, the teens were 14 and 15 at the time of the alleged incidents.

One of the sexual encounters happened in a hotel.  A second teen ran from the suspect when he started rubbing his back and a third teen was groped while Malik drove to school, reported the NY Daily News.

The accusations come amid mounting pressure to report allegations of abuse within the insular, secretive community, the largest outside Israel, and were reported barely a week after a respected religious counselor in the same sect was sentenced to 103 years in prison for sexually abusing a girl.

Both cases come from within the Satmar Hasidic sect, the official said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
