The FBI is said to be investigating a man who allegedly groped a sleeping female passengers’ breast on a flight and then later claimed he had a disability. 

The disturbing assault allegedly took place on Christmas Eve during a flight from Las Vegas to Dulles Airport in Virginia.

According to court documents posted by NBC reporter Scott MacFarlane on Twitter, a female passenger who was seated in the middle seat of a flight awoke to a man who has only been identified as having the last name ‘Lopez,’ who was allegedly touching her breast ‘unwanted and without her permission.’

DailyMail.com has reached out to the FBI for additional details on the alleged assault. 

The victim told feds that she fell asleep during the four-and-a-half hour flight in seat 12B while Lopez was seated in 12C. After dozing off, she was woken up by ‘the feeling of someone rubbing up and down her right breast, including her right nipple,’ according to the feds.

When the victim woke up, she said she saw Lopez’ hand on her right breast and that he was leaning over while groping her, according to the documents.

The victim claims that the assault was not accidental because the touching was a ‘repetitive motion’ that happened for more than 10 seconds.  

Once the victim fully understood what was happening, she screamed ‘get away from me!’ in shock and Lopez jumped from his seat and made his way to the back of the plane, the documents state.

Lopez told a crew member he thought he was in trouble and that he was ‘sorry,’ according to federal documents. 

Lopez was then moved to seat 21C to get him away from the victim and returned to the back galley to tell the same crew member again that he was sorry and that he had a disability.
