A man and woman accused of performing a sex act on a Delta flight from Los Angeles to Detroit tried to hide the act with a blanket, according to the police report from the Wayne Metro Airport Police Department.

WXYZ obtained the police report from a Freedom of Information Request

The 48-year-old woman from California and the 28-year-old man were sitting next to each other in row 26 on the Delta flight on Oct. 29. The FBI was called in after the incident and each received a ticket.

According to one witness, the man and woman were kissing and foreplaying before the woman allegedly performed oral sex on the man.

"I felt bad for the guy beside but I guess he was sleeping," the witness said in the police report.

According to the report, the man and woman were in seats 26D and 26E respectively, and the woman switched her seats to sit next to the man.

The man in the case told police that she had fallen asleep in his lap, but there was no sexual intercourse. He said he "grabbed her breasts on the outside of her clothes."

Police said the woman was intoxicated with bloodshot, red eyes and the smell of alcohol coming off of her. She also told police she fell asleep in his lap and nothing more.

According to the report, a passenger informed the flight attendant about the man and woman.

Another witness said she went to the row and saw the woman performing oral sex on the man.

"I asked the lady to sit straight up. She was bobbing her head up and down while he was holding her down," they said. "They had a blanket partially covering the act."

Both passengers were ticketed and allowed to go on their way. Police took the woman back to get her luggage from Delta, and tried to get her rebooked, but she was told she was not allowed on Delta flights anymore.
