FBI Agents Seize Documents from Jewish School in NY: Sources

Federal agents executed search warrants from a Jewish school and a public safety building in a Hasidic village in the Hudson Valley in connection to allegations of child sex abuse, law enforcement sources told NBC 4 New York.

The FBI and other law enforcement agencies executed warrants at the United Talmudical Academy and the public safety building Thursday morning in Kiryas Joel, an ultra-Orthodox village in Orange County. 

Sources say that no arrests were expected as part of Thursday's action. 

The raids come after two videos appeared on the Internet said to show an academy principal in close physical contact with young boys. School officials have said there was no abuse.

A phone message left by the Associated Press at the private religious school was not immediately returned.

Sheriff's deputies also were involved along with representatives from two district attorneys' offices.
