(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.

Information about the case can also be reported by calling 703-691-2131 or 1-866-411-TIPS(8477), by texting “TIP187” plus the message to CRIMES(274637), or by visiting Crime Solvers online.

    I hardly know where to begin!

    But surely, we need to throw more money at this wacky school system!

        Maybe. I am befuddled!

    Where ?

    I feel strongly that we need to be far more careful about who we allow into our country, and especially into our schools. How’s that?

    This guy has red flags coming out his ears. I thought the teacher who shoplifted alcohol with her student/bf was the bottom. I am thinking perhaps we have not yet seen the bottom of the FCPS spend monster.

      I see no red flags?
      He looks like he was born here so unless you’re suggesting deporting parents who might potentially spawn children that look like him, snot sure there is an easy solution for you.

        Not deportation. Just better vetting before we let them in. Oh wait! Someone was looking into that. I think he was elected to do so.

      Just like how we shouldn’t allow white men in movie theaters, schools, or any public place, to be frank? Because all white men are shooters and should be kept outside the country as well, correct? I mean it’s not like they’re American natives, anyway. We should just deport them all back to Europe.

      • Mike M

        As I have said, we have enough home grown crime. We have to own that. We don’t need to import it. And there are other issues in this like the guy’s age, apparent lack of vetting, the sharper cultural differential, . . .
