An officer tasked with preventing sexual assault in the U.S. Air Force has been arrested and charged with a sex crime in Arlington, local media reported.
According to a crime report, Lt. Col. Jeff Krusinski — described as “a drunken male” — allegedly approached a women around 12:35 a.m. in a parking lot, and groped her breasts and butt. The women fought him off, but Krusinski tried to grab her again. The victim did not know 41-year-old man.
Police arrived at the scene and Krusinski was arrested for sexual battery. He was held on a $5,000 bond.
A mugshot obtained by ARL Now showed Krusinski with several scratches on his face. Police could not confirm how he received the minor injuries.
The Air Force has faced growing criticism over its response to sexual assault and harassment.
