The incident took place March 10 on a light rail train hailing from Minneapolis, the charges say.

The 39-year-old woman was asleep when she awoke to Logans pulling down her pants and underwear, the complaint said.

She told him to stop and proceeded to tell others she knew aboard the train about what had happened, according to authorities.

One of her acquaintances took a picture of Logans before he deboarded and showed it to police, who used the photo to track him down, the complaint said.

A review of the train’s surveillance footage reportedly shows Logans touching the woman’s legs before untying her pants, legal documents say.

The Minneapolis man’s criminal history includes convictions for trespassing, loitering with an open bottle, disorderly conduct and drunk driving.

He was charged via warrant Wednesday and could not be reached for comment.

No attorney was listed for him in court records.
