ARLINGTON, Va. — An Air Force officer who led the branch's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response unit has been charged with groping a woman in a parking lot.

Arlington County police said Monday that they charged Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski of Arlington with misdemeanor sexual battery in an alleged assault about 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the Crystal City section.

A police report says that the 41-year-old Krusinski was drunk and grabbed a woman's breast and buttocks. Police say the woman fought him off and called police.

Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck says Krusinski did not know the woman involved.

Susie Doyle, spokeswoman for the Arlington County Sheriff's Office, said Krusinski was released Sunday on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond. An arraignment is scheduled for Thursday.

A working phone number for Krusinski could not be found, and court records did not list an attorney.

Air Force spokeswoman Natasha Waggoner said Krusinski was removed from his position in the sexual assault unit after the Air Force learned of his arrest. He started in the position in February.
