Woman Was Assaulted On Vegas Flight

Woman Was Assaulted On Vegas Flight

A 34-year-old Indian man on board a USA flight was arrested by federal authorities in MI after a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her while she was asleep.

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. According to the complaint, 34-year-old Prabhu Ramamoorthy reportedly unbuttoned the 22-year-old victim's shirt and stuck his hand in her trousers while she was asleep against the plane's window.

- Authorities have accused a man of sexually assaulting a 22-year-old woman on an airplane after she fell asleep. Ramamoorthy also indicated that he partially unzipped her trousers and inserted his finger, and may have unsuccessfully attempted to put his finger in her vagina.

Ramamoorthy, whose age was not available, was taken into custody at the Wayne County Airport Authority.

Ramamoorthy later told an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent he "might have" undone the woman's bra and cupped her breast, according to court records. "When she fully woke up, the man stopped", according to the newspaper.

Ramamoorthy and his wife are living on a temporary visa, thereby disqualifying the latter as suitable custodian, according to federal prosecutor, Amanda Jawad. Ramamoorthy was arrested after the plane landed, according to court documents.

Weather warning for strong winds
A weather phenomenon known as a Sting Jet could rip through eastern England as Storm Eleanor rips across Britain. Tuesday night will continue windy with strong southwest to west winds, reaching gale force along western coasts.

Ramamoorthy's wife told officials, 'they had called the flight attendants to try to change seats.

When asked for a statement, he said that he had taken a pill and fallen into a deep sleep, Jawad said.

Ramamoorthy gave "conflicting reports", about what happened with the victim, Jawad said.

Prabhu's lawyer Richard O'Neill offered to submit his client's passport, and said that there had been no prior allegations of such nature against Prabhu and that he had a clean record. Ramamoorthy also admitted that he "unzipped the woman's trousers part-way and put his finger in her pants" in an attempt to digitally penetrate her, but was ultimately unsuccessful, the court filing stated.

A spokesman with Spirit Airlines said in an email that it is coordinating with law implementation.
