On Oct. 25, 26-year-old Robert Earl Glasper III was allegedly drunk when he was arrested in Denver after allegedly touching a passenger and masturbating openly during the flight, according to the criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court of Colorado.

The complaint states Glasper grabbed the male passenger’s butt and “repeatedly put his hand on top of the victim’s left leg” while also firmly cupping his leg.

According to court documents, Glasper attempted to hold the victim’s hand and asked to perform a sex act.

After the plane reached cruising altitude, officials said Glasper asked to switch seats with the victim to be closer to a third passenger in the same row.

However, the victim refused to move and according to a witness, the victim appeared “paralyzed and deeply uncomfortable,” police said.

According to the complaint, there was a message from the victim shown to the third passenger, which said, “Ummm this guy is really handsy and a creep.”

Officials said Glasper began masturbating later in the flight and exposed himself to the victim.

At this point, the witness asked a flight attendant to move both themselves and the victim to a seat away from Glasper. In the new seat, the witness said the victim was crying.

If Glasper is convicted of sexual assault, he could face up to two years in prison.
