The owner of Dynamo NY Soccer Club, based on the Sheepshead Bay-Gravesend border, was imprisoned on Wednesday after being charged with molesting an 8-year-old player last summer.
Stanislav Rozovsky stands accused of attacking the girl at his Manhattan Beach home after dropping off other players last August. The incidents went unreported until December, when she told a school staffer.
Authorities first scooped up Rozovsky in February, and he quickly posted bail. But the judge called Rozovsky back to court, where she tripled his bail to $75,000, an amount he couldn’t immediately post.
What brought the judges wrath was a series of actions that showed “no respect to court mandate,” the judge said. After posting bail in the February arrest, Razovsky returned to his day job, teaching soccer to his predominantly Eastern European children and adult clients at Dynamo – based out of the Brooklyn Racquet Club (2781 Shell Road). And even with nearly 50 license suspensions, Rozovsky continued to drive his players to and fro.
It appears he’ll remain behind bars until his trial.
Officials from the 61st Precinct told members of the Manhattan Beach Neighborhood Association that they’ve made an arrest in a rape incident in the community, in addition to ramping up efforts to battle the more common problems of speeders and thefts.
Sergeant Carter, the newly-appointed leader of the precinct’s community affairs unit, reported that they had charged a man for rape in the community. The incident occurred on Kensington Street, when an officer encountered a van with covered windows. They began an investigation of the vehicle and found a 16-year-old girl having intercourse with a 39-year-old man. The sex was consensual, but because of the age difference police arrested the man on the spot.
