WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A man has been arrested after allegedly "fondling the breasts" of a woman who was sleeping in the seat next to him on a flight from Miami to Reagan National, according to a report by The Smoking Gun.

According to the report the man is 39-year-old Saurabh Agarwal of Sterling, Va.

"In a sworn affidavit, FBI Agent David Wiegand reported that (the victim) was seated next to Agarwal on American Airlines Flight 1142 which departed Miami around 5:45 P.M.," The report reads.  "After falling asleep following departure, the woman awoke to find Agarwal 'hugging her body, with his hand inside her bra, fondling her breast.'"

"'Because of fear,' however, the woman 'pretended to be asleep.' Wiegand noted that Agarwal 'kept squeezing R.C.L.'s body tighter' and 'squeezed her nipple,'" The report continued.  "The woman, who was in the window seat, told investigators that she 'did not show that she was awake due to being scared of' Agarwal."
