(DETROIT FREE-PRESS) — A 19-year-old female passenger en route to Amsterdam from Detroit fell asleep mid-flight, only to wake up and discover the man seated next to her had his hands down her underpants and was fondling her, according to a criminal complaint filed today in federal court in Detroit.

The alleged incident happened more than two years ago, aboard a Delta Airlines flight that left Detroit for Amsterdam.

But it wasn’t until today that criminal charges were filed in U.S. District Court in Detroit against the 32-year-old man, Janarol Dickens, who is charged with engaging in abusive sexual contact. He is an American citizen, but not from Michigan.
