Elizabeth Smart, known for her time as a kidnap and rape victim in the early 2000’s, has just revealed that she was sexually assaulted while on a Delta flight. During the flight, between Philadelphia and Atlanta last July, a man reached into her seat and began to rub her inner thigh while she was asleep. She woke up and realized what was happening but din’t say anything to the man.

“The last time someone touched me without my say-so was when I was kidnapped, and I froze,” she said.

She also reported that the man didn’t make any excuses or even speak, simply went back to sitting there like nothing had happened. She reported the assault to Delta employees and authorities as soon as she exited the plane, and both the FBI and Delta are investigating.
