A Long Island man has been indicted for allegedly raping and torturing a woman he had met for a date.

Yossef Kahlon, 55, of Great Neck, faces up to 25 years in prison for allegedly beating and raping a woman in January.

According to the indictment, Kahlon and the victim agreed to meet at his Great Neck Home. Once inside, Kahlon asked the victim if she would like to be bound, to which she consented.

However, she did not consent to be struck or harmed, which Kahlon did “multiple times, and forcibly raped her,” according to the indictment.

Kahlon was arrested by members of the Nassau County Police Department on Aug. 19.

“This defendant allegedly brutalized a woman in his home and forced his victim to perform various sexual acts,” said Acting District Attorney Joyce Smith in a statement. “If you believe you have been a victim of Yossef Kahlon, we urge you to call the Special Victims Bureau at [516] 571-1266 and report the incident.”

He faces charges of criminal sexual acts, rape in the first degree, aggravated sexual abuse.

The case is being prosecuted by Senior Assistant District Attorney Matthew Perry of the Special Victims Bureau. The defendant is represented by Anthony Capetola.

Bail was set at $250,000 cash, $500,000 bond, and $1 million partially secured bond, the DA’s office said.

Kahlon was forced to surrender his passports and submit to electronic ankle monitoring.
