A Quran instructor in Oregon has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing teenage girls.
Muhammad L. Hasan, 50, was taken into custody on Wednesday on seven counts of sex abuse after two girls under the age of 14 reported him.
The abuse allegedly started in 2016 when the girls were clients of Hasan.
Hasan operates a business called AICQ, which provides private instruction on the Quran out of a storefront office in Tigard near Portland.
The two alleged victims say Hasan kissed them on the mouth on several occasions starting in 2016, according to court documents.
He also allegedly touched one girl’s breasts.
Police suspect there may be more victims.
