Acting Nassau County District Attorney Joyce A. Smith announced the indictment of a Great Neck man for allegedly striking, raping and forcing his victim to perform other sexual acts in his home in January 2021.

Yossef Kahlon, 55, of Great Neck, was indicted by a grand jury and arraigned before Judge Robert Bogle on charges of criminal sexual act in the first degree (a B violent felony), rape in the first degree (a B violent felony), aggravated sexual abuse in the first degree (a B violent felony) and aggravated sexual abuse in the fourth degree (an E violent felony). Bail was set at $250,000 cash, $500,000 bond and $1 million partially secured bond. The defendant was also ordered to surrender his passport and submit to electronic ankle monitoring. If convicted of the top charge the defendant faces up to 25 years in prison.

“This defendant allegedly brutalized a woman in his home and forced his victim to perform various sexual acts,” Acting DA Smith said. “If you believe you have been a victim of Yossef Kahlon, we urge you to call the Special Victims Bureau at 516-571-1266 and report the incident.”

According to the indictment, on Jan. 25, Kahlon and the victim allegedly agreed to meet at his home in Great Neck. Once inside, Kahlon allegedly asked the victim if she would agree to be bound. The victim allegedly agreed but indicated that she was not consenting to being struck or harmed in any way. Kahlon allegedly ignored that request, struck her multiple times and forcibly raped her.

Kahlon was arrested by members of the Nassau County Police Department on Aug. 19.
If you believe you have been the victim of Yossef Kahlon, contact the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office Special Victims Bureau at 516-571-1266.

The case is being prosecuted by Senior Assistant District Attorney Matthew Perry of the Special Victims Bureau. The defendant is represented by Anthony Capetola, Esq.
