Aubrey Lane, a 31-year-old woman who was sexually assaulted during a recent flight claims the man responsible still hasn’t been arrested.

The married mother from Colorado, alleged she was assaulted by a drunk male while on a red-eye flight from Phoenix to New York this past June.

“My first thought was this guy’s drunk. He was super chatty,” Lane said in media interview.

“I’ve flown a lot. I’m used to people saying hello. This is the most anyone has sat down and started talking to me.”

Lane claims that despite the man’s obvious drunk state flight attendants continued to serve him alcohol throughout the flight.

A few hours later, as she went to use the bathroom she claims the man followed her into the bathroom and raped her.

Lane immediately reported the incident to the flight attendants who moved her to a seat at the back of the plane.

“I was feeling overwhelmed,” she said. “All of a sudden, I was thrown in a middle seat, bawling. On top of being sad and hurt and scared, I was also embarrassed.”

When the plane landed in New York, authorities were called to meet the plane at the gate but they only took Lane to the hospital.

The suspect was not taken into custody and she claims that she does not even know his name.

Because the alleged rape happened in the air, FBI has to investigate and prosecute.

Lane plans to sue American Airlines for allowing the drunk man on board and continuously serving him drinks.

Lane said American Airlines responded to her attorneys with a letter this past December and called her allegations a “nuisance claim.”

They offered her a $5,000 payout, which she has not accepted.

“I’m coming out now because [American Airlines] hasn’t made it evident it wants to change this,” Lane said. “What’s going to stop this from happening again unless I make a big fuss about it?”
