Subway Manager Who Rubbed Lotion All Over Sleeping Woman on Emirates Flight Has Sentenced to Pay Her Therapy Bills

That’s when she realized her body was ‘sticky’ and smelled of Nivea lotion. She went to the lavatory and discovered that her body — including breast, inner thighs and more — was covered in lotion and her thong had been pushed to the side.

The man admitted to crew and later to police that he did it. He claimed she ‘needed’ it and also that she enjoyed it. However he now “blame[s] the attack on a manic, bipolar episode and other psychiatric issues.”

He’s now been sentenced to 2 years in prison and the married father of 3 will have to pay restitution for the woman’s therapy sessions.
