    The FBI is looking into sexual assault accusations against brothers Tal, Alon, and Oren Alexander.FBI agents are looking into accusations that span two decades, The Wall Street Journal reported.The Alexander brothers have denied all claims made against them.

    Famous luxury real estate brothers well-known in New York and Miami are facing an FBI probe following multiple accusations of sexual assault, The Wall Street Journal reported.

    Women who say they’ve been assaulted by real estate brothers Tal and Oren Alexander, along with their brother Alon, have spoken to FBI agents in the past few weeks, the Journal reported, citing a document and people familiar with the matter. The Journal reported that the agents are investigating accusations from the Alexanders’ high school years and the two decades since.

    Attorneys for the brothers have denied the multiple accusations of sexual assault.

    In a statement to the Journal, a lawyer for Oren and Alon said that they were “unaware of any basis for an FBI inquiry into our clients’ conduct. A lawyer for Tal told Business Insider that they “expect that anyone who investigates these matters will determine what we have— that Tal has done nothing wrong.”

    Attorneys for Oren and Alon did not immediately respond to a request for comment from BI. The FBI declined to confirm or deny the probe’s existence to Business Insider.

    All three Alexander brothers have been accused of sexual assault over the past few months in civil lawsuits.

    A June lawsuit filed by a woman named Angelica Parker claims that Tal and Alon raped her at a Manhattan apartment in 2012 while Oren watched. In March, two women filed civil lawsuits accusing Alon and Oren of rape.

    The lawsuits were filed under New York’s Adult Survivor’s Act, which allows people to sue for sexual assault after the statute of limitations has passed.

    Evan Torgan, who represents the two women in the March lawsuit, told the Journal that two dozen other women approached him with accusations of assault after they filed the suit.

    Torgan did not immediately respond to a request for comment from BI. An attorney for Parker declined to comment.

    Five more women also came forward and told the Journal that they were sexually assaulted by Oren Alexander.

    All three brothers have denied all claims made against them.

    Oren and Tal are real estate agents connected to some of the country’s most expensive sales — including a $240 million New York apartment sold to Ken Griffin that holds the record for the most expensive home ever sold in the US. The brothers also cofounded the luxury real-estate brokerage Official.

    Alon is an executive at his family’s private security firm, Kent Security.
