Reham Ali in police custody after a surveillance camera apparently caught him attacking a teenage boy.
Brooklyn narcotics cops investigating suspicious activity seen on a security camera made a disturbing discovery Saturday: a senior citizen sexually assaulting a mentally retarded teenage boy.
Reham Ali, 65, was arrested for a sex crime after two city narcotics cops caught him holding down and sodomizing the 16-year-old between two parked cars in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, just before 7 a.m. Saturday.
A 24-hour security camera near Seventh Ave. and 64th St. showed Ali seemingly hiding something there, and two detectives went to investigate.
"The suspect had no idea that the camera was there, but it was a quiet block that time of the morning and he made no real effort to hide what he was doing," a police source said.
"He grabbed the kid and right there on the street, between the parked cars, attacked the kid."
The teen told police he had been on his way to meet a friend for a game of basketball at a nearby park when Ali walked up and propositioned him.
The teen, who attends a special education school, was scared and flustered. He walked faster, trying to get away from the creepy old man, sources said.
Ali, a married man with four grown children, followed the teen for at least two blocks, whispering what he wanted to do to the boy, another source said.
Ali then bear-hugged the boy and pulled him between two parked cars on a deserted stretch of Seventh Ave.
"The poor kid didn't know what to do," another police source said. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Ali was charged with a first-degree criminal sex act, unlawful imprisonment and endangering the welfare of a child.
After he was busted, the retired construction worker confided to cops that "I did this before. I did it at home," in Pakistan, sources said.
Ali's wife was stunned by his arrest. Ali had told his family he was having an asthma attack and that he needed some fresh air, said one of his two daughters, Faria Ali, 26.
"This morning he said, 'I'm suffocating here. I'm going for a walk.' He's a good dad. He never did anything like this. He never bothered anybody," she said.
