A teenage girl’s visit with a family friend turned into a nightmare when 43-year-old David Goldfarb tried to talk her into snorting cocaine, bought her more drugs, and asked her to pose provocatively in his ex-girlfriend’s dress.
He surrendered to authorities Monday and faces charges of child abuse and delivering cocaine to a minor in the alleged incidents spanning December 20, 2015 and December 21, 2015.
The 15-year-old girl traveled to Fort Lauderdale for a visit with him before spending the holidays with relatives in South Florida.
Throughout evening and early morning hours, he gave her beer and drugs, and eventually tried to keep her in his bedroom before she ran out and called 911.
While at his apartment, she tells police he tried talking her into snorting cocaine with him. She declined, but then he offered her $80 and she agreed to try it.
When they finished their lines, he took her to buy more and had her drive his car, despite her having no driver’s license or permit. To have cash for the drug buy, he took back the $80 he had given her and offered to take her shopping instead.
When they returned to the apartment, they again used more cocaine, police said.
He then urged her to wear his ex-girlfriend’s dress, aÂ leopard print, for a photo shoot in a plan to get that ex jealous.
The warrant says he called the teen girl “sexy” and told her she had a “great body” and was well developed for her age, even saying he was “in love” with her.
The teen told investigators that during her time at his apartment, his behavior was very sexual in nature. He’d rubbed her leg as they sat together, unzipped his pants, appeared to be aroused, and even played porn on the TV.
Hours into the visit, while the girl smoked weed, he talked her into his bedroom, at which time sheÂ grabbed a pair of scissors to defend herself, according to the victim.
She says she reluctantly went into his room where he played porn, unzipped his pants, and then tried moving a dresser to block the room’s door. The teen then ran out of the apartment barefoot to find help at around 5 a.m.
After she escaped, he told her family that she ran out of his apartment as he returned home from partying.
He said he would never hurt her and would not be talking to police.
He’s now being held at the Broward Main Jail on a $15,000 bond.
