Man federally charged with groping passenger on SFO-bound flight

A man who was on an international flight heading into San Francisco earlier this year has been charged with the sexual abuse of a passenger, federal prosecutors said Monday.

Rajesh Kumar Kapoor, 56, of Sacramento, was on a flight from the Republic of Korea to SFO on Jan. 16 when he allegedly touched a woman's breasts and inner thigh without her permission.
