NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A man has testified he saw physical contact between a man accused of groping a woman and the alleged victim on a cross-country flight last year.

Turkish-born U.S. citizen Bawer Aksal has been charged with sexual abuse. The alleged victim has testified she awoke to find Aksal's hands in her blouse and down her shorts.

A witness who sat in the same aisle on the Phoenix-to-Newark flight last August testified Monday in Aksal's trial in federal court in Newark.

The New York City high school English teacher testified he saw Aksal "spooning" with the alleged victim, with one hand around her back and the other underneath a sweater she had on her lap. He said he saw the woman wake up with a jolt and shove Aksal away.
