61-Year-Old Woman Arrested For Groping TSA Agent

Usually, the Transportation Security Administration agents are the ones doing the groping.

Although stories involving groping allegations and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) have become commonplace, this one stands apart.

On July 14, a 61-year-old woman from Longmont, Colo., was arrested at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport for sexually assaulting a female TSA agent.

“According to the arrest report, 61-year-old Yukari Miyamae is accused of grabbing TSA agent Barbara O’Toole’s ‘left breast through her clothing and squeezing and twisting it with both hands without the victim’s permission,’” read an article on the website for Denver’s KWGN.

According to the article, officials told FOX31 Denver that Miyamae had confessed to the crime, and will be charged with felony sexual abuse.

A neighbor told the news station that Miyamae is a frequent traveler, and “For her to be arrested for anything is totally shocking to (him).”
