BATON ROUGE - A man from Baton Rouge is accused of groping a woman while she was asleep on a plane.

Federal prosecutors say Devender Singh, 61, was arrested when the plane landed in New Jersey on Sunday.

Singh appeared in U.S. District Court on a charge of abusive sexual contact on Monday.

A judge ordered him detained with the option to seek a bail hearing. He could face up to two years in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say Singh was seated next to the woman, who occupied a window seat on the United Airlines flight from Houston to Newark Liberty International Airport.
