A woman is speaking out after she was allegedly assaulted on a flight from Miami to Indianapolis on Friday, saying “don’t ever think you’re going to know how to respond.”
CBS4 reported that Shauna Smith was ready for a relaxing flight when she sat in her assigned seat on her trip back home. However, she soon noticed a male passenger in front of her speaking to a female passenger next to him. Not long after, the male passenger, identified as 61-year-old Reginald Hatcher, got up and moved next to Smith. Immediately, she said he started to make explicit remarks.
“He began making references to minors and sexual intercourse,” Smith told the outlet. “The conversations went back and forth between his family and then back to sexual content, then back to his family, then back to sexual content again.”
It wasn’t long until Smith said Hatcher started to make unwanted physical advances on her.
“He leaned in and kissed me on the cheek, and I kind of turned my head a little bit, and was just so taken back,” Smith said. “He did it again. He said, ‘I like that, I want to do it again.’ And, did it again.”
