Woman Testifies Against Alleged Groper on NJ-Bound Flight

A woman who accused a fellow airline passenger of molesting her on a flight from Phoenix to Newark, N.J., says the ordeal left her feeling “contaminated.”

The woman testified in federal court in Newark on Wednesday in the trial of 48-year-old Bawer Aksal of North Bergen. He is charged with sexual abuse.

The woman was on a United Airlines flight last summer when she told authorities she awoke to find Aksal had slipped his hands into her blouse and shorts.

In her testimony, The Jersey Journal reports the woman said the stranger whispered “kiss me” into her ear when she woke up. She says the ordeal left her feeling “completely humiliated” and “contaminated.”

Aksal denies the charge. His attorney has called the scenario described by the woman as far-fetched.

The trial resumes Monday.
