“Sugar daddy” broker arrested for alleged rape

A self-proclaimed sugar daddy, frequenter of “hook-up sites” and Nest Seekers broker has been arrested on a first-degree rape charge, according to the New York Post. Lakhinder Vohra, 47, who also went by the online handle “Daddy Loves Arm Candy,” was arrested after being accused of attacking a woman he met on SeekingArrangement.com — which pairs young women, or “sugar babies,” with deep-pocketed and often much older men — in his luxury Financial District apartment. 

The Post describes Vohra as a “real-estate titan” at Nest Seekers, but it seems that any trace of him has been scrubbed from the brokerage’s website. A source told the Post that Vohra allegedly threw the victim on his bed upon arrival at his 37 Wall Street apartment and forced her to have sex with him. The victim was treated at Roosevelt Hospital.

According to Vohra’s Nest Seekers bio — which no longer appears on the site  — Vohra claimed to run the websites PartyDigest.com and founded the SikhCommunityCenter.org.

Nest Seekers management were apparently shocked by the arrest. “Obviously, we’re not happy about this,” an executive at the brokerage said.

Another source told the Post, that more than 100 women have visited Vohra’s apartment in the past year. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
