JAPANESE MAN MOLESTED WOMAN AND CAUGHT MASTURBATING ON JETSTAR FLIGHT

A Japanese man allegedly touched a woman inappropriately in a Jetstar flight from Japan to the Gold Coast on December 6 last year.

Nathan Paterson told Australian media news.com.au that his girlfriend was touched in a sexual manner halfway into the journey. That alleged molester had a stench of alcohol and had six bottles of wine.

When the man was confronted, he apologised immediately.

Paterson then demand the cabin crew to take away bottled drinks that contained alcohol. The Japanese man then behaved aggressively before getting a half-full vodka bottle from the overhead locker and putting it under his seat.

The vodka was confiscated by the cabin crew. Then the man switched on his laptop, watched pornography and began masturbating.

"He pulled his pants all the way to his ankles to expose his leggings. He then proceeded to place his hands into his leggings and start moving his arm in an up and down motion," Paterson said.

He said the behaviour went on for three hours but he didn't alert the crew because of safety concerns and felt “very unsafe and insecure” on the flight.

Paterson reported the Japanese man to the police when the plane landed. The 50-year-old man had pleaded guilty to offensive and disorderly behaviour on an aircraft and was reportedly fined $2125.

Jetstar released a statement saying that it had investigated the matter.

“Clearly this was a distressing incident and we regret that one of our passengers was subjected to the deplorable behaviour of another passenger on-board. We placed the offending passenger on our No Fly List and they are unable to travel on any Qantas Group flights including Jetstar.”
