Substitute Teacher Accused of Soliciting Minor for Sex

(This article was updated at 8:40 a.m. Thursday, June 15, after additional information was provided by Fairfax County Public Schools.)

A 22-year-old from Reston who formerly worked as a substitute teacher for Fairfax County Public Schools is accused of soliciting a minor.

According to the Fairfax County Police Department, Hatim Khalid Abdelrahman was arrested by detectives from the Child Exploitation Unit after he “arranged to meet a young girl with the apparent intent of having sex.” The arrest was made at about 6 p.m. Monday in the Herndon area, police say.

John Torre, public information officer for FCPS, said Abdelrahman worked as a substitute teacher for FCPS for four days at two schools, and he is no longer a FCPS employee. The alleged solicitation did not involve any FCPS students, Torre added.

Abdelrahman is charged with solicitation of a minor and attempted indecent liberties. Anyone who thinks their child or children may have had inappropriate contact with Abdelrahman is asked to contact FCPD’s Child Exploitation Unit at 703-246-7800.
