FBI urges Jeffrey Epstein victims to call hotline

Do you recognize this pedophile?

After arresting Jeffrey Epstein on sex trafficking charges, the feds on Monday urged other alleged victims to get in contact with an FBI hotline to share their experiences.

At a press conference, Manhattan US Attorney Geoffrey Berman pointed to a large photo of Epstein next to the number 1-800-CALL-FBI, while an FBI official implored people to get in touch.

“Today I’m asking everyone to take a good look at this man. If you have been victimized in any way or if you are somebody who has any additional information about his alleged illegal behavior, we want to hear from you,” said William Sweeney Jr., the assistant director in charge of the FBI’s New York Field Office.

“Whatever age you are now, whatever age you were then, no matter where or when the incident or incidents took place. The number to call is 1-800-CALL-FBI.”

Sweeney then explained exactly what prompts to follow when calling that number.

“Your bravery might just empower others to speak out about crimes committed against them,” he continued. “We know that reliving these events can be brutal, we’re here to work side by side with you as you go through this process.”

Epstein is expected to be arraigned later Monday on sex trafficking charges for allegedly creating “a vast network of underage victims” for him to exploit in the early 2000s.
