FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. -- A Virginia man has been charged with sexual battery after police say a preliminary investigation revealed he sexually assaulted a woman who thought she was coming in for a job interview in Reston, Virginia.

Detectives say Imataiz Rauf, a registered sex offender, placed an ad on Craigslist for a job position of administrative assistant.

When the victim arrived at 12005 Sunrise Valley Drive for an interview, she was allegedly sexually assaulted by the 44-year-old, according to police.
