A 36-year-old Canadian man of no fixed abode has been arrested at London Heathrow airport after allegedly sexually molesting two teenagers, one male and the other female, in a drunken rampage on an Air Canada flight from Toronto.

Adam Pitcher was charged with sexual assault on a female over the age of 16, sexual assault on a male over the age of 16, damaging an aircraft and being drunk on an aircraft, the Daily Mail reported.

London’s Sun newspaper said Pitcher was also alleged to have smashed up a toilet on the flight, AC856, operated with a B777 aircraft. Cabin crew are said to have restrained a 36-year-old man and handcuffed him to a seat while the pilot radioed ahead for police to meet the flight when it landed in the early dawn last Wednesday.

Crew and some of the 388 other passengers on the flight were questioned as potential witnesses, the paper reported.

Pitcher was remanded in custody to appear at Isleworth Crown Court, which is not far from Heathrow, on 27 July 2017.
