Man Posts Craigslist Ad for Administrative Assistant, Sexually Assaults Interviewees


Imtiaz Rauf


A registered sex offender has been charged with sexual battery after a preliminary investigation revealed he assaulted a woman who thought she was coming in for a job interview in Reston. Detectives say 44-year-old Imtiaz Rauf, of Gainesville, placed an ad on Craigslist for the position of administrative assistant. When the victim arrived at 12005 Sunrise Valley Drive for an interview, she was sexually assaulted. We are investigating other similar reports and additional charges may be forthcoming.

Rauf is being held at the Adult Detention Center without bond and detectives are looking into other ads believed to be placed by him. We encourage anyone who may be a victim to contact Detective T.
