The NYPD has yet another issue on its hands.
In the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn, off-duty cop Jacob Sabbagh was arrested Wednesday on child molestation charges.
Sabbagh was arrested on suspicion of molesting a girl over the course of three years, beginning when she was just 10 years old, investigators say.
The 33-year-old cop faces charges of sexual conduct against a child, sexual abuse in the second degree, and endangering the welfare of a child. The indictment alleges that the abuse started in June of 2005 and ended in March of 2008. The officer wasn’t just accused of touching the young girl, but having sex with her as well. The girl came forward when she was 16, which launched the investigation.
Sabbagh was arraigned on Wednesday and was later released while the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office and the NYPD’s Internal Affairs Bureau continue to pursue the investigation.
