PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. — A Virginia teacher has been charged with raping and sexually assaulting two different students. Youssef Taleb, 27, a math instructor at Northern Virginia Community College, is charged with rape, object sexual penetration and sexual battery.

The first victim told police the teacher took her into a conference room on the community college campus in Manassas and sexually assaulted her. The report was filed May 5, and the alleged assault happened on May 3. The victim also accused him of raping her inside a classroom on March 22.

The second victim, who also reported the assault on May 5, said Taleb sexually assaulted her earlier in the semester.
