Repeat Sex Offender Arrested for Trying to Have Sex with 12-Year-Old

On Thursday, May 9, 2024, at about 2:30 PM, a 12-year-old girl was waiting at a bus stop when a man approached her and asked her age and where she was going. The girl was scared and said she was 14 when the man asked her if she wanted to have sex with him. Right then, the bus arrived, and both the girl and the man got on the bus. She took a picture of the man and sent the photo to her parents, saying she was being followed. At one bus stop, the man got off the bus, stared at the girl through the window, then got back on the bus. When the girl reached her final destination in East Sacramento County, she got off the bus, and the man got off behind her. She immediately called 9-1-1, and the man walked away. Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the area and searched for the man but could not find him. Deputies then transported the girl home.

The investigating Deputy ran the photo the girl had taken through facial recognition software and found a match. The suspect was identified as 36-year-old Kahlilullah Razaq. In 2013, Razaq was convicted in Sacramento County of Lewd and Lascivious Acts with a Child Under 14, sentenced to six years in state prison, and required to register as a sex offender. While on parole in 2016, Razaq was arrested and convicted of Indecent Exposure with a prior sex crime conviction and was again released on parole early this year. On March 22, 2024, Razaq was arrested again, this time in a prostitution sting when he offered money to an undercover female Sheriff’s Deputy in exchange for sex. He was released five days later pending trial.

On May 10, Deputies arrested Razaq on a parole violation and booked him into the Sacramento County Main Jail. Detectives from the Sheriff’s Child Abuse Bureau later add booked Razaq for Contacting a Minor with the Intent of Committing a Sex Act. He is currently being held without bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, May 17.
