Lt. Col. Jeff Krusinski is accused of approaching a woman in a parking lot in Arlington, Virginia.
He then grabbed her breasts and buttocks as the woman fought back.
Krusinski is a member of the US Air Force's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office and NBC reports he has been removed from his duties and charged with sexual battery. Reports say the man was drunk during the incident and was scratched as the woman contested him.
Stars and Stripes writes Krusinski served in both Iraq and Afghanistan as well as being a squadron commander at Madill Air Force Base in Tampa. This comes on the heels of other disturbing sexual assault cases in recent years.
At Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio 17 instructors have been convicted of sexual misconduct with trainees. A trial accusing an 18th is going on at the facility now.
