An employee at a Fairfax County recreation center was charged with trying to rape a 77-year-old woman in her own home within an apartment complex for senior citizens and people with disabilities.
Malcolm Reheem Hall, 28, of Centreville was arrested Thursday and charged with attempted rape, sodomy and two counts of animate object penetration, Fairfax County police announced Friday.
Hall is a part-time Fairfax County Park Authority employee at the Cub Run RECenter in Chantilly, police said. He began working as a custodian at the recreation center in Sept. 2015.
Hall was fired from that job pending the outcome of the case.
Police do not believe Hall victimized any other residents.
Residents of the Forest Glen at Sully Station complex said they were unaware of the disturbing crime.
