An employee of the Transportation Security Administration accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Manassas while he was in uniform and after he showed his badge to the alleged victim was immediately removed from security operations pending an investigation, the agency said.
Harold Glenn Rodman, 52, of the 10500 block of Winfield Loop in Manassas, allegedly approached the woman at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday on the street where he lives, Prince William County police have said.
Rodman worked as a supervisor at Dulles International Airport. A TSA spokesman said he has been with the TSA since October 2004.
Rodman has 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 Rodman was in uniform when he approached two women who did not know him, showed his badge and assaulted one before running away. Police called to the area saw Rodman leaving his house soon after and his appearance matched the victim’s description, police said.
TSA spokesman J. Kawika Riley said, the agency was working with local police. “TSA holds its personnel to the highest professional and ethical standards, and investigates all allegations of misconduct.” The allegations against Rodman, “in no way reflect the work of the more than 50,000 security officers who every day ensure the security of the traveling public,” Riley said in an e-mailed statement.
