A Staten Island man is in custody after allegedly molesting a woman on board a flight from Dubai to New York City, using hand lotion to cover the woman’s body while she was asleep.
According to The Smoking Gun, Nadeem Mehmood Quraishi, 42, was arrested when the Emirates flight arrived in New York after he molested the woman using a bottle of hand lotion the woman had brought on board the flight.
The criminal complaint alleged that the woman had slept for several hours with the help of anti-anxiety medication. She awoke to Quraishi asking “whether she had a good nap.”
According to NYPD-FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force Detective Christopher Caruso, that’s when the victim noticed hand lotion “spread on her arms, chest, and up her legs,” and that “the hand lotion she had placed in the pocket in front of her seat was missing.”
As she walked to the bathroom, the woman noticed that “her vaginal area was sore” and “saw that her underwear had been shifted and that lotion was in her vaginal area and on her underwear.”
She returned to her seat and asked Quraishi where the lotion was. When he gave it to her, she contacted the flight crew. Flight attendants told police they found her “crying and trembling” in one of the airplane’s galleys.
Flight attendants claim that when they questioned Quraishi about the incident, he admitted to putting the lotion on the woman’s “arms, shoulders, and legs, and used the lotion in her vaginal area.”
His disgusting excuse: he thought she “needed it” and “enjoyed it because she did not resist.”
“The defendant also told the flight attendants that he liked it and that it happened to him as a child,”Caruso reported.
Qurashi was taken into custody when the plane reached John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. There, he admitted “inappropriately touching the passenger, that he knew it was wrong, but he did not specify how he touched the passenger.”
Qurashi’s bond was set at $50,000 in a Tuesday appearance in federal court. He was forced to surrender his passport as well as stay away from the victim.
