Israeli National Charged With Brutal Rape In New York
GREAT NECK, NY - On August 19, police arrested Yossef Kahlon, 55, after he was indicted by a grand jury for reportedly committing a brutal sexual assault on a woman he met online.
In January, after a few conversations, the victim agreed to meet Kahlon at his residence on Long Island.
At some point, during their “date,” the woman agreed to allow Kahlon to bind her hands and feet, according to court documents.
However, Kahlon then began repeatedly striking and beating the woman, before he raped her, states the indictment.
Prosecutors believe Kahlon may have more victims.
In a press release, the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office stated:
"This defendant allegedly brutalized a woman in his home and forced his victim to perform various sexual acts," said Acting District Attorney Joyce Smith in a statement. "If you believe you have been a victim of Yossef Kahlon, we urge you to call the Special Victims Bureau at  571-1266 and report the incident."
Kahlon has been charged with first-degree rape, first-degree criminal sexual assault and two counts of aggravated sex abuse. He was booked into the Nassau County Correctional Center on $250,000 cash bail; $500,000 bond; and $1 million partially secured bond.
If convicted, the Israeli national is facing 25 years in prison.
*Judge Robert Bogle ordered Kahlon to surrender his passports and submit to electronic ankle monitoring.
