BENSONHURST - The 30-year-old principal of Elite High School has been accused of forcing two teenage boys to endure years of lewd sex acts.

Emmanuel Yugutkin has been indefinitely suspended from his role as principal after the alleged victims alerted the authorities. Students and teachers alike were stunned to hear about Yugutkin?s arrest.

?We?re shocked, we?re numb,? said Rabbi Yahuda Braun. ?We?re just waking up to this.?

Neither of the alleged victims attended the private Jewish school. Assemblyman Dov Hikind applauded their courage to come forward and is working on a bill to have private school workers fingerprinted to protect school districts nationwide from sexual predators.
