TSA employee charged with sexual assault

An employee of the Transportation Security Administration was charged with sexually assaulting a woman while he was in uniform and after he showed his badge to the alleged victim, according to Prince William County police.

Harold Glenn Rodman, 52, of the 10500 block of Winfield Loop in Manassas, allegedly approached the woman on the street where he lives.

Rodman was held without bond Monday with a court date set for January, court records show. He is charged with aggravated sexual battery, object sexual penetration, forcible sodomy and abduction with intent to defile, police said.

Police said they did not know where Rodman worked for the agency or in what capacity. A TSA spokesperson was not available immediately Monday for comment.

On Sunday at about 3:25 a.m., police responded to a report of a sexual assault. Two women said they had been approached by a man they did not know, and that he assaulted one of the them before running away, police said. Police said the woman reported he had been wearing a uniform and showed a badge.

During a canvass of the neighborhood, Rodman came out of his home and matched the description given by the reported victim who is 37 and from Manassas, said police. Rodman was arrested after an investigation.
