Nassau County District Attorney Anne T. Donnelly announced that a Woodbury man was indicted on Criminal Sexual Act, Rape, Assault, and other related charges for allegedly repeatedly sexually abusing and assaulting a 13-year-old child between February and November 2023.
Adrees Omar, 25, was arraigned recently before Judge Robert McDonald on grand jury indictment charges of Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree (a B violent felony); Assault in the Second Degree (a D violent felony); Endangering the Welfare of a Child (an A misdemeanor); four counts of Rape in the Second Degree (a D violent felony); two counts of Assault in the Third Degree (an A misdemeanor); Criminal Obstruction of Breathing or Blood Circulation (an A misdemeanor); Criminal Sexual Act in the Second Degree (a D violent felony); and Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Fourth Degree (an A misdemeanor).
The defendant was also charged in the indictment with three counts of Criminal Contempt in the First Degree (an E felony); four counts of Criminal Contempt in the Second Degree (an A misdemeanor); Attempted Assault in the Second Degree (an E felony); and three counts of Harassment in the Second Degree (a violation) stemming from alleged conduct that violated a previously issued order of protection on behalf of the defendant’s father who also lives in the Woodbury home.
The defendant pleaded not guilty and was remanded. Omar is due back in court on February 7, 2024. If convicted of the top charge, the defendant faces a potential maximum of 25 years in prison.
“This defendant allegedly preyed upon a vulnerable child for months in some of the worst ways imaginable,” said DA Donnelly. “We must protect our children from these predators. This office remains committed to prosecuting abusers who harm our kids and seeking justice for victims.”
DA Donnelly said that, according to the investigation and indictment, Adrees Omar allegedly began a relationship with a 13-year-old child in February 2023. During the relationship, the defendant allegedly physically and sexually abused the victim at a home in Woodbury.
On November 28, 2023, the victim allegedly fled the defendant’s home naked after a sexually violent incident.
When police arrived, the defendant allegedly barricaded himself inside the home for nearly eight hours.
Omar was arrested on November 28, 2023, by the Nassau County Police Department’s Special Victims Squad.
