UPPER WEST SIDE — A part-time, after-school instructor was charged with raping a 14-year-old girl he met at the program, according to officials and reports.
Jamal Baughan, 22, was arrested in East Harlem Tuesday morning and charged with having intercourse with the teen, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
He allegedly raped her at his home on April 11.
"This is not a DOE employee,” Department of Education spokeswoman Devora Kaye said in a statement. “This individual was immediately removed from the after-school program in response to these deeply disturbing allegations."
Roads to Success did not return an immediate call for comment.
The agency did notify officials about the allegations and removed Baughan from the program, according to sources.
The after-school worker had a background check and was approved by Roads to Success, sources added.
It was not immediately clear how long Baughan had been working at the school.
He was expected to be arraigned at Manhattan Criminal Court Tuesday night.
The Department of Youth & Community Development said they were "disturbed by the allegations" and making sure Roads to Success cooperates with the investigation.
“Nothing is more important to the city than the safety and well-being of our young people,” the agency said in a statement.
