Indian arrested for assaulting a woman in US flight!!
A 34-year-old Indian man on board a United States flight was arrested by federal authorities in MI after a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her while she was asleep.
Prabhu Ramamoorthy is charged with aggravated sexual abuse, a five-year felony.
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. He stopped after the victim woke up, and the woman went to the back of the plane to report the incident to a flight attendant, the criminal complaint said. reports the Washington Post.
Prabhu Ramamoorthy was accused of putting his hand in a female passenger's trousers and unbuttoning her shirt. He was aboard a Spirit Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Detroit with his wife occupying the seat next to him.
His wife who was in court and left in tears without commenting told police that she didn't like the other woman sleeping on her husband's lap and that she asked to change seats.
Ramamoorthy, whose age was not available, was taken into custody at the Wayne County Airport Authority. He later told authorities that he had fallen into a deep sleep and did not assault the woman.
The report also says that Prabhu admitted to unzipping Celia's trousers and putting his fingers inside.
Ramamoorthy gave "conflicting reports", about what happened with the victim, Jawad said. The magistrate found the case "very unusual" and ordered Ramamoorthy to be held after Jawad argued the assaulter posed a potential danger to people around him.
Prabhu's wife, meanwhile, told a similar sequence of events and said that they had called the flight attendants to change their seats as well.
Ramamoorthy's lawyer, Richard O'Neill, offered to turn over his client's passport. "I have a hard time with some of these allegations, but that's what a trial is for".
Stephen Schuler, a spokesman for Spirit Airlines, said Thursday the company is fully cooperating with law enforcement and referred all questions to them.
