Indian man with wife beside, gropes USA woman, arrested

A man faces a detention hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court in Detroit after being charged with sexually assaulting a sleeping woman aboard a Spirit Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Detroit on Wednesday, Robert Snell of The Detroit News reports.

Prabhu Ramamoorthy, from India, was charged with aggravated sexual abuse after the 22-year-old woman accused him of putting his hand in her trousers and unbuttoning her shirt while she was sleeping against the window, the Detroit Free Press reports.

The victim told investigators that she woke up to discover the fellow passenger shoving his fingers inside her trousers and "vigorously moving them", according to a federal criminal complaint.

The woman immediately reported the incident to flight attendants who said she "appeared visibly upset and was crying".

In a statement, Campos said a man sitting in the middle seat between her and another woman grabbed her upper, inner thigh three times.

Prabhu Ramamoorthy was accused of putting his hand in a female passenger's trousers and unbuttoning her shirt.

Ramamoorthy was arrested as soon as the flight landed.

Ramamoorthy and his wife are living on a temporary visa, thereby disqualifying the latter as suitable custodian, according to federal prosecutor, Amanda Jawad.

He initially told authorities that he was also asleep, and that the woman had fallen asleep on his knee and he wasn't sure where he had kept his hand. They assigned her a different seat at the back of the plane. Flight attendants say that never happened. Prabhu even traveled with his wife and she was beside him when the incident took place.

But apparently he changed his statement later and said that he may have unclasped the victim's bra while she was asleep and placed his hands over her breasts. He said Ramamoorthy had worked as a project manager at a technology group for about two and a half years.

Stephen Schuler, a spokesman for Spirit, said that it was cooperating with law enforcement on the incident. The woman alleged that Ramamoorthy's fingers were in her genitals and that he was "vigorously moving them".

A CNN investigation found that FBI investigations into midair sexual assault have jumped by 66 percent from the fiscal year of 2014 to 2017.
