  • Prabhu Ramamoorthy 34

Mr Ramamoorthy, an Indian citizen living in the United States on a temporary visa, was sitting in the middle seat, with his wife on the aisle side and the alleged victim in the window seat.

The miscreant was seated in the middle seat next to his wife, with 22-year-old victim seated in the window seat.

The court filing states that 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 man accused, Prabhu Ramamoorthy, faces up to five years in jail if found guilty.

The woman reported the incident shortly before the plane landed, according to the police complaint. "He told an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent that he "'might have' undone (the woman's) bra while playing with it, and that he had cupped her (clothed) breast", according to the complaint.

Clearly upset, the woman reported the attack to flight attendants.


Ramamoorthy was then detained by the Wayne County Airport Authority.

According to The Detroit News, he originally told the FBI investigators that he was sleeping at the time the allegations took place. He also indicated that he unzipped her trousers part-way, and did put his finger into her trousers. Ramamoorthy's hometown and age have not yet been revealed. He later told authorities that he had fallen into a deep sleep and did not assault the woman.

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

The wife drew the same story similar story and she added that she approached the flight attendants attempting to change their seats.

Magistrate Judge Steven Whalen, who said it was a "very unusual case", ordered Ramamoorthy to be held pending trial after Jawad successfully argued that he was a flight risk and a potential danger to others around him.

Ramamoorthy has worked as a project manager in Metro Detroit for more than two years, defense lawyer Richard O'Neill said.
