A man from India is blamed for sexually assaulting a 22-year-old woman Wednesday while she was sleeping against a window on a flight from Las Vegas to Detroit, as indicated by government court filings.

Some graphic details 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. When she woke up, she said she saw the man with "a hand in her trousers and noticed that her trousers and shirt were unbuttoned".

Prabhu also apparently gave conflicting testimonies about what happened with the victim.

The victim immediately reported the attack to flight attendants, who later told federal agents that she was "visibly upset and was crying".

Ramamoorthy was arrested after the plane landed, according to court documents.

Nigro said authorities would enter the building to determine the cause of the fire once it's deemed safe. Another resident escaped with her two children and their dog. "The smoke was so heavy".

But flight attendants told investigators that only the alleged victim had asked for her seat to be changed. The female traveler then noticed that both her shirt and trousers had been undone.

Officials also said that he admitted to unzipping the woman's trousers and that he claimed that while he tried to put his finger in her genitals, he was unsuccessful.

Magistrate Judge Steven Whalen said, "It seems that she's either colluding with the defendant to cover up his actions or she's completely oblivious to what he did", Jawad argued. "He was brazen enough to do this basically in public, next to his wife where anyone could have seen him", calling the incident a "very unusual case".

"There's been no allegations from anywhere that his behavior has ever been inappropriate prior to this incident", O'Neill said. Meanwhile, Ramamoorthy is now charged with aggravated sexual abuse and held without bail after an appearance in federal court in MI on Thursday.

She said the suspect was putting his "fingers in her (genitals) and 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.
