Christopher R. Kloman, 73, of McLean, who taught at the Potomac School for decades, has been arrested and charged with three counts of indecent liberties and one of abduction with intent to defile involving four of his former students.

Fairfax County Police say the investigation of Kloman began in November 2011 when a 55-year-old woman saw that he was teaching children at Washington Episcopal School and reported that he had molested her when she was 12.

Detectives found other victims, girls who had been between the ages of 12 and 14 when Kloman allegedly molested them between 1968 and 1969.

Police say there are probably more victims, but they have no evidence of any incidents since the early 1980s.

Kloman, of Julie Avenue in McLean, was a teacher at the Potomac School from 1965 to 1994 and later taught at schools in Maryland. He had been a substitute teacher at the time the investigation began, police say.

Police arrested Kloman about 1 p.m. on Friday. He was taken to the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center.
