KIRYAS JOEL, N.Y. -- FBI agents served two search warrants at the United Talmudical Academy school buildings and the Department of Public Safety after allegations of child abuse at the village school in Kiryas Joel, according to lohud.com.
The search warrant came after two videos were posted online that apparently show a school principal making physical contact with students.
Earlier in the month, the state police launched an investigation with the Orange County District Attorney’s Office and the county Child Abuse Unit after being notified of the second video. No charges were filed in relation to the first video that was released last fall, said lohud.com.
Village officials issued a statement saying they were cooperating with the request made by law enforcement officials, said lohud.com.
