Financier Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in New York Saturday on charges related to sex trafficking, according to multiple reports

Epstein, 66, is expected to be arraigned in federal court on Monday on charges of molesting dozens of underage girls, sources told The Miami Herald.

He was reportedly arrested by the FBI and is in custody in New York. His bail hearing is reported scheduled to take place Monday. 

"That bail hearing will be critical because if they grant him bail, he will disappear and they will never get him,’’ a source in New York told the Herald.

The arrest was first reported by The Daily Beast. 

The Hill has reached out to the FBI and the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York for comment. Both declined NBC 4's request for comment.
