Please download the attached PDF and share it with all baal teshuva’s (newly religious) women living in Baltimore and Flatbush.
Over the last several years several women have disclosed to The Awareness Center that they had been sexually manipulated by a young man by the name of Avi R. It appears from the reports of his behavior his grooming practices of luring in women has gotten more sophisticated.
Mr. R. is currently twenty-seven-years old. He wears the traditional yeshivish attire, which includes a black suit, white shirt and a black hat. His victims describe him as a man who is between 5’3” to 5’5”, with a medium built. He has a red beard and hides his payos (sideburns) behind his ears and under his hat. They believe that when he is in town he davens (prays) at Agudath Israel of Baltimore, Machzikei Torah Congregation and or Shearith Israel Congregation. Avi R. does not live in Baltimore, yet appears to only come to town for family simchas and Succos.
Modus Operandi (MO):
Avi R. apparently stalks single, baal teshuva’s (newly religious) women, who are older then him and live alone. He then will find a way to enter his victims home or apartment. In the past he has asked women “if they live close if he could get a glass of water”, or if he “could use their bathroom's, etc. All of his victims disclosed that they felt he could be trusted because he was younger and also because he appeared to be Yeshivish and frum from birth (ultra-religious from birth).
All of the women have disclosed that when he enters their home (or apartment), that they always leave the door open. They all have said that they lead the way into their kitchens or to show him where their bathroom is. When they return to their living rooms they noticed their front door was closed. After drinking the water or using they bathroom he engages the women into conversations and sits down. His conversation often leads to asking the woman if they would like him to read their palm or talking about her ankle. The sexual manipulations begin once he touches the woman’s hand or ankle.
