The man leading a U.S. Air Force program responsible for preventing sexual assault has been arrested on suspicion of drunkenly groping a woman in an Arlington, Va., parking lot, officials said Monday.

Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski, 41 -- shown with several apparent cuts on his face in a police booking photo -- was charged with sexual battery. He has been removed from his position overseeing the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program pending the outcome of the investigation, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek told the Los Angeles Times.

"On May 5 at 12:35 a.m., a drunken male subject approached a female victim in a parking lot and grabbed her breasts and buttocks," said a crime report from the Arlington County Police Department. "The victim fought the suspect off as he attempted to touch her again and alerted police." 

The incident happened near a stretch of restaurants and bars just west of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, police said.

Arlington police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck said that the woman apparently didn't know Krusinski and that it was unclear where the cuts on his face came from.
