The 22-year-old victim, who is Korean, had gotten off a Southwest Airlines flight from Salt Lake City around 8 p.m.Tuesday when the agent, identified as Maxie Oquendo, 40, approached her near the B4 gate of Terminal B.

Ogendo then asked her to follow him so she could be searched to see if she was carrying a knife or a weapon.

The woman followed him up an escalator to third-floor, near a lounge and a bank of elevators, where he “lured” her inside a bathroom under the pretext of conducting a legitimate search, sources said.

Once inside the bathroom, he allegedly began to molest her.

Then, he instructed her to unzip her pants and touched her again, the source said.

Two witnesses — women who work at the airport near where the pair passed — were able to help provide a description that matched the heavyset Oquendo, sources said.

Oquendo, who was arrested Thursday, was charged with sex abuse, forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment and official misconduct.

A spokeswoman for Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said Oquendo was awaiting arraignment this afternoon.

A spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration was not immediately able to provide any information about Oquendo’s arrest.
