Sexual assault suspect uses ice-cream truck to lure kids in Durham

A Durham suspect, who allegedly used an ice-cream truck to lure children in North Carolina, turned himself in Friday night, after two boys reported that they had been sexually assaulted in the truck. According to police records, Isam Fathee Mohamed Rahmah, a 51-year-old man, had previously told one of the boys to get in the truck and help distributing ice-cream to the kids. Once the boy was in the vehicle, the Durham driver locked the doors and started touching the boy inappropriately. The boy resisted, saying “stop”, and Rahmah released him giving an ice-cream as a gift.



When interviewed, the parents of the boys, who had notified the police of the incidents, announced that they had seen the driver of the ice-cream truck before, since he came around often. They described the truck as an old red van, decorated with ice-cream pictures. Later on, one of the ice-cream buyers shared his impressions with the police, saying Rahmah might be living in the truck.


During his last visit to the neighborhood, Rahmah was confronted by the family members of one of the victims. He responded to their words by saying, “No I didn’t do anything, I didn’t do anything,” which was immediately replaced by “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”


The charges Isam Fathee Mohamed Rahmah is facing include several counts of first-degree kidnapping and indecent liberties with a child, Durham police say, adding that more charges may be possible.
