Albuquerque. A Florida man was accused of sexually assaulting the girl on the Sunday trip between Houston to Albuquerque and was later told by authorities that the president of the United States says you can hold women’s private areas.

Bruce Michael Alexander, 49 of Tampa was at federal court for the second time on Monday in Albuquerque for a hearing on allegations of sexual assault with violence. It wasn’t immediately certain if he had counsel.

According to a felony charge the woman was able to tell investigators that the male who was behind her had a slap twice and she pleaded with him to stop, and then demanded that he change seats.

Alexander was able to recall in a written declaration that the woman standing in his front spoke to him, and then switched locations.

Alexander remains in detention in the midst of a preliminary hearing as well as the hearing for detention scheduled for Tuesday.
