Former Clarksburg High School Bus Operator Charged with Sexual Offenses



A Montgomery County Public Schools bus driver has been arrested and charged with rape, and other sexual abuse charges, after he was caught on tape assaulting a 12-year-old special needs girl last Tuesday.

Police believe that there may be more victims. What makes this case scary is that the driver has primarily driven for students receiving Special Education services. He’s driven at multiple schools in the district including Clarksburg High School and Hallie Wells Middle School, according to MCPS.

Montgomery County Police Special Victims Investigations Detectives arrested bus operator Etienne K. Kabongo, 62, who was known to the students as “Mr. Steve,” of the 7800 block of Mineral Springs Drive in Gaithersburg on August 5. He was charged with second-degree rape, third-degree sexual offense and the sexual abuse of a minor. He is currently being held without bond
