An investigation into an attempted abduction of a 14-year-old girl in Brooklyn fell apart after it was learned that the suspect comes from a prominent Orthodox family, law enforcement sources said Wednesday.Attempted abduction case in Brooklyn falls apart - NY Daily News
The suspect, a 20-year-old Orthodox man, showed up at the 61st Precinct with his attorney Tuesday — a day after the NYPD released an enhanced photo of him as a suspect in the crime.
But when investigators contacted the victim after the suspect came forward the family "stopped cooperating with the cops," a police source said.
A source with knowledge of the investigation said the girl changed her mind about talking to authorities after receiving pressure from the community.
The suspect's father is the principal of a yeshiva and his grandfather is an "influential rabbi," the source said.
