WASHINGTON - The officer in charge of a program to curb sexual assault in the US Air Force was arrested over the weekend for allegedly grabbing a woman by the breasts and buttocks in a parking lot not far from the Pentagon, officials said on Monday.

Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Krusinski, 41, was arrested on Sunday and charged with sexual battery after the alleged incident in the Crystal City area of suburban Arlington, Virginia, officials said.

Krusinski, the head of the Air Force's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office, was removed from his job pending an investigation on Monday.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel later spoke to Air Force Secretary Michael Donley about the incident, expressing "outrage and disgust over the troubling allegations" and emphasizing "that this matter will be dealt with swiftly and decisively," Pentagon spokesman George Little said.
