(New Haven, Conn./CBS Connecticut) – A New Haven rabbi and founder a yeshiva in the city is facing sexual assault charges.

This morning, police arrested 77-year-old Daniel Greer.

Greer is charged with sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.

Detectives say his arrest stems from alleged assaults on a victim from the early to middle 2000s.

Greer was the dean and founder of Yeshiva of New Haven/the Gan School. The alleged victim was a high school student there.

Police first launched their investigation in August of last year after being contacted by a man, through his attorney, that he’d been the victim of repeated sexual assaults.

Greer turned himself in this morning. Bond was set at $100,000.
