PHOENIX, July 16 (UPI) -- Police in Phoenix say an airline passenger will face sexual abuse charges for allegedly groping a Transportation Security Administration security agent.

Yukari Miyamae, 61, of Longmont, Colo., was freed from jail Friday after she allegedly grabbed a female agent's breasts at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport the previous day.

Miyamae faces a felony charge. Details of the incident were not immediately available.

One of Miyamae's neighbors told KWGN-TV in Denver he was shocked at her arrest and said she was a frequent flyer who traveled every week.
