Aboubacar Soumah is accused of moving to a seat closer to a 14-year-old girl on Flight 1743 headed to Salt Lake City on Tuesday, according to records filed in the U.S. District Court of Utah. Then, he apparently touched her repeatedly, including several times in private areas of her body.
The man also asked her several questions, such as whether she was flying alone and if she would touch his lap, the girl told FBI Special Agent Daniel Dunn. During the flight, the teen reported the man's behavior to flight attendants, who alerted airport police, according to Dunn's affidavit. Police met the flight upon its arrival in Utah and questioned the man, according to court records.
