The San Diego Harbor Police Department confirms a 22-year-old man was detained following a report of sexual battery on a Sun County Airlines flight from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport to San Diego's Lindbergh Field late Sunday afternoon.
A spokesperson said officers met the crew at the gate and identified the suspect. Because the alleged crime is reported to have occurred in flight, the FBI was contacted. They interviewed the man, as well as a woman in her early 20s who was identified as the alleged victim.

The suspect was released, though the spokesperson said federal charges are possible.
ABC affiliate KGTV reports the call came in about 30 minutes before the plane landed.
