Authorities in New Jersey said that a man is accused of groping a female passenger while she slept on a United Airlines flight from Houston to New Jersey on Sunday.

According to NBC 4, Indian national Devender Singh, was taken into custody by the FBI after a woman said she awoke to the 61-year-old kissing her face with his hand in her shirt.

The Washington Times reported that Singh was also allegedly touching himself sexually while groping the woman, who was seated next to him.

Prosecutors said that the woman was able to push the offender off of her and immediately went to the back of the aircraft and reported the incident to a crew member.

The unidentified female also requested that police be present when the plane landed.

When the plane touched down at Newark Liberty International Airport, Singh of Baton Rouge, La., was taken into custody.

He was charged with abusive sexual contact and faces two years in prison if convicted.
