Sexual Assault Charged



Fairfax County police have charged a Lorton man with two sexual offenses. He is Tabbasum H. Gilani, 29, of 7965 Almeda Court. On Saturday, June 8, at 4 p.m., officers were called to 6364 Springfield Plaza to speak with a 23-year-old woman who reported that she’d been sexually assaulted.

Earlier that day, the victim was detained and charged with misdemeanor shoplifting. Police say she claimed a loss-prevention officer coerced her into performing a sexual act. The victim was transported to the hospital.

Meanwhile, detectives conducted an investigation that led to the arrest of Gilani—the loss-prevention officer who’d detained the victim earlier in the day. He was charged with abduction with intent to defile and forcible sodomy and transported to the Adult Detention Center.
