Original release (January 22):

The Baltimore County Police Department has obtained an arrest warrant for an Ohio man in connection with the sexual abuse of a minor in Baltimore County.

On December 31, 2014, Baltimore County Police received information that a juvenile female residing in Baltimore County had been sexually abused over a period of time by the suspect. Detectives identified the suspect as 50-year-old Frederick Martin Karp of the 24200 block of Woodway Road in Beachwood, Ohio. Detectives learned that Karp was a Rabbi in Ohio.

Detectives traveled to Cleveland to interview Karp last week.

Based on the information developed during the investigation, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Karp. The warrant charges him with the following offenses:

  • Sexual Abuse of a Minor – Continuing Course of Conduct
  • Perverted Practice
  • Second Degree Sex Offense
  • Third Degree Sex Offense

When police went back to Karp’s home, he was not there. Karp was later located by police at Kennedy Airport in New York and taken into custody. He remains in New York awaiting extradition proceedings.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Department Crimes Against Children Unit. The investigation so far has not indicated that there were any incidents of abuse at a Baltimore area Jewish facility. Due to the on-going investigation, further information cannot be released at this time.
