A rabbi from Ohio charged with sexually abusing a girl in Baltimore County was extradited to Maryland for an initial court appearance Wednesday, Baltimore County police said.

Frederick Martin Karp, 50, of the Cleveland suburb of Beachwood was arrested last week at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

Police, who received information on Dec. 31 that Karp had abused the girl, went to Cleveland and obtained an arrest warrant charging him with second- and third-degree sex offense, perverted practice and sexual abuse of a minor.

When they came back to Karp’s home, he was gone; he was arrested Jan. 15 at JFK.
