An instructional assistant at an elementary school in Newington faces an assault charge after allegedly dragging a student by the arm.
Fouzia Masood Khan, a 59-year-old Springfield resident, was charged with simple assault yesterday (Thursday) for a Jan. 11 incident at Saragtoga Elementary School, the Fairfax County Police Department announced.
According to police, another school employee saw Khan “drag a student by their arm down the hall.”
“The employee immediately reported the assault to school administrators. Our detectives were notified on Jan. 13 and assumed the investigation,” the FCPD said.
Detectives with the department’s Major Crimes Bureau Child Abuse Squad served Khan with a “summons releasable warrant” yesterday morning.
Police say anyone with information about the incident can contact detectives at 703-246-7800, option 4, or submit a tip through Crime Solvers by phone (1-866-411-TIPS) and online.
FCPS didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from FFXnow.
This is the second time this year that an instructional assistant employed by FCPS has been charged with assaulting a student. A woman working at Glen Forest Elementary School in Bailey’s Crossroads turned herself in on Jan. 3 after another employee reported that she’d assaulted a student with disabilities on Dec. 8.
