California man accused of groping teen on flight

SALT LAKE CITY — A California man was taken into custody earlier this week after federal officials say he groped and sexually propositioned a teenage girl on a flight from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City.

Hans Loudermilk, 67, of Oceanside, Calif., was arrested Tuesday at the Salt Lake City airport, according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Utah.

A 15-year-old girl sitting next to Loudermilk on the flight accused him of touching her chin and rubbing her leg and thigh during the flight, prosecutors said in a complaint filed in federal court Wednesday.

The girl told the FBI that Loudermilk told her he could teach her things sexually that boys her age could not and said she was old enough to marry him in Utah.

When the flight landed, the girl reported the incident to a Transportation Security Administration officer, prosecutors said.
