A registered "sexually violent" offender convicted of having sexual contact with a 4-year-old girl he was babysitting has reported an address change in Westchester County.
The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services issued an alert on Thursday to Westchester residents regarding the residency of 42-year-old Sidney Abdul, who has moved to an apartment on Bruce Avenue in Yonkers.
The Division of Criminal Justice Services has assigned Abdul a Level 3 threat, which means he is a “high-risk repeat offender and possible threat to public safety.” He has also been designated as a sexually violent offender.
According to the Division of Criminal Justice Services, Abdul had sexual contact with his victim with someone who was known to him while he was serving as a babysitter in June 2001. He was arrested by the Mount Vernon City Police Department and convicted of having first-degree sexual contact with an individual less than 11-years-old in February 2003. He was sentenced to five years in state prison. He is now under the jurisdiction of the Yonkers City Police Department SOR Unit.
