Middlesex County prosecutors say 18-year-old Gabriella Colon and 23-year-old Richard Ortiz, both of the Bronx, coerced a 17-year-old Lancaster girl into having sex with roughly 30 men between Jan. 1 and Feb. 2 at an East Brunswick hotel. They were arrested Friday and face numerous charges, including criminal restraint and promoting prostitution.

The rabbi, 35-year-old Aryeh Goodman of East Brunswick, was allegedly among those who had sex with the girl. He’s charged with engaging in prostitution with a child and child endangerment.

Prosecutors say Goodman runs a Chabad, a religious learning center, at his home and may have affiliation with another center in East Brunswick.
