Suspected molester arrested in Israel
by UPI

JERUSALEM - Israeli police have arrested a Brooklyn psychologist who fled to Israel after allegedly molesting children under his care in the 1980s.

Avrohom Mondrowitz, 59, is suspected of sexually abusing children in the Gur Hasidic sect who had come to him for counseling. He fled to Israel more than two decades ago and was living in Jerusalem.

Mondrowitz was arrested Friday morning and his extradition to the United States is pending, the Haaretz newspaper reported.

He faces eight counts of child abuse and five counts of sodomy involving four boys ages 9 to 15, The New York Times reported Friday.

A warrant was issued 1984, but when police arrived at his Brooklyn home to arrest him, they found it vacated.

An indictment was drawn up a year later, but Mondrowitz was able to evade U.S. authorities due to the complexities of international extradition.
