He then "inserted his hand palm side down, into the shirt of the female passenger, who was at that time sleeping." The report says this went on for almost five minutes, as Pochampally made skin to skin contact to her upper chest area before she woke. 

When she did wake, he allegedly ran down the aisle to try and hide. The crew of the plane was alerted by passengers and they moved him to an alternate seat until the plane landed and authorities could be contacted.
