New York: Brogenet Cinor told officers he has worked with voodoo magic for the past 30 years and has cleansed souls haunted by evil spirits. That’s how he met a woman and her 11-year-old daughter. Now, Cinor is accused of raping the girl while she was a middle school student. The girl, now 16, told Sunrise police officers Cinor had sex with her because he was “cleansing” the evil spirits that lived inside of her.

On Friday, Sunrise police held a news conference in an effort to find other people who may have had unwanted sex with Cinor to “cleanse evil spirits.” They said he’s been practicing as a voodoo priest in the city for almost a decade. Cinor, 48, was arrested June 19. He faces one count of sexual battery on a child less than 12 years of age. He was released from the Broward County Jail on June 20 on a bond of $75,000.

He took the girl into a private shed that resembled a tiki hut, police said, and had sex with her.A few weeks later, McCue said, the girl told her mother what had happened. She confronted Cinor and he threatened to curse her if she said anything about the accusation.”He was using the victims’ belief in voodoo and curses,” she said. “They believed they could die if they didn’t follow his instructions.”
