Student Molested by TSA Agent in New York Airport

FILE- 75 Years Since La Guardia Airport Opens In New YorkBy Philip Messing. A uniformed TSA agent lured a college student into a La Guardia Airport men’s room under the pretense she needed more screening — and then he molested the woman, sources told The Post on Friday.

Shortly after the attack, suspect Maxi Oquendo allegedly pretended to pore over surveillance video looking for the perp, but he was identified by witnesses and arrested . . .

The sick attack happened right after the 22-year-old victim, from South Korea, got off a Southwest Airlines flight from Salt Lake City at about 8 p.m. Tuesday in Terminal B and was allegedly approached by ­Oquendo, 40 . . .

Oquendo was working as a TSA evening supervisor that night. After learning that a sex complaint had been filed, he went through the motions of reviewing video surveillance footage, sources said.

But two female witnesses who work at the airport were able to help provide a description that matched the heavyset Oquendo, sources said. (Read more from “Student Molested by TSA Agent in New Work Airport” HERE)
