Serviceman arrested after woman reports battery

A man installing a satellite dish at an Edinburgh home was arrested after a resident said he grabbed her.

J. Sai, 35, 6322 Jakes Place, Indianapolis, was arrested on a charge of battery.

About 12:30 p.m. Friday, a woman reported to police that Sai had grabbed her buttocks while installing a satellite dish at her home on Prosser Drive. He also had asked her personal questions about her boyfriend, according to the report from the Edinburgh Police Department.

The woman told a relative about Sai after he had asked her to come into a bedroom of the home and help him with a remote, which made her uncomfortable, the report said. The relative called police.

Sai told police he had accidentally touched the woman while walking down a hallway and that he had asked her questions to get to know her better and make her feel comfortable, the report said.

Sai was taken to the Johnson County jail, where he was released on $1,250 bond.
