Indian arrested for assaulting a woman in US flight!!

The 22-year-old was in the window seat, while the man, Prabhu Ramamoorthy, an Indian national living in the U.S. on a temporary visa, was in the middle seat with his wife in the aisle seat.

In July 2014, a 19-year-old female traveler on Delta Air Lines on the way to Amsterdam from Detroit two or three years sooner had nodded off midflight, just to wake up and find the man situated alongside her had his hands down her underpants and was caressing her, as per a criminal grievance documented at the time in government court in Detroit.

She said Ramamoorthy was seated between his wife and the victim and continued assaulting her until she woke up and went to report the incident to flight attendants. She also says her trousers were undone and her shirt was unbuttoned to reveal her breasts. The flight, which was being operated by Spirit Airlines, was flying from Las Vegas to Detroit on 3 January.

The teenager - an unaccompanied minor on braces because of foot damage - had told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that a 45-year-old pilot grasped her butt, touched her internal thigh and halfway inclined toward her as she was dozing in her seat by the window, the Free Press detailed at the time.

The woman was sitting in the window seat next to the man, Prabhu Ramamoorthy.

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.

LAPD makes arrest in Wichita "swatting" tragedy
Ramsey says it's not hard for gamers to find someone's address to give out, even if they are located in another country. The man hasn't been identified by police, but Lisa Finch told the newspaper that the victim was her son, Andrew Finch.

He likewise demonstrated that he unfastened her jeans part-way, and put his finger into her jeans. Ramamoorthy was arrested upon landing at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport. But the prosecutor said that "flight attendants did not report that anyone asked them to change seats other than the victim". She said a flight attendant then moved her to a seat behind the man harassing her.

Ramamoorthy provided "conflicting reports", about the incident.

Both Ramamoorthy and his wife gave lengthier statements later indicating that the pill Ramamoorthy had taken was "plain Tylenol".

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.

Stephen Schuler, a spokesman for Spirit, said it was cooperating with law enforcement on the incident.
