PORTLAND, Ore. -- A 26-year-old Oregon woman was arrested at Portland International Airport for allegedly sexually abusing a woman on a flight from Las Vegas Sunday night.

Police were called to the airport while Heidi McKinney was still aboard Alaska Airlines flight 621, where she was accused of touching another woman's breast and genitals without consent. When the plane landed around 9:20 p.m., she was taken into custody.

McKinney was held for 3rd-degree sex abuse in Multnomah County Jail. She bailed out of jail later Monday afternoon and no complaint was filed against her, police said.

She is accused of touching another woman's breasts and genitals without her consent on a flight to Portland Sunday night, police said.
