A former U.S. Customs and Border Protection agricultural specialist has been charged with sexually assaulting an employee at Los Angeles International Airport, prosecutors said.

Kanwar Dhaliwal, 36, is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on charges of assault to commit rape, sodomy, and oral copulation; sexual battery by restraint; and assault by a public officer, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

Kanwar Dhaliwal, 36, allegedly approached the woman August 28, 2014, at the airport and made sexual advances toward her. Dhaliwal, who was working as an agricultural specialist, then pushed and sexually assaulted the woman, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors allege that Dhaliwal pushed the woman and sexually assaulted her. "U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) places a great emphasis on the integrity and professionalism of our workforce and does not tolerate actions that would tarnish the reputation of our agency", Ruiz said in a statement.

Prosecutors will recommend bail be set at $100,000 at his Friday hearing.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spent more than $5 million on polygraph examinations for applicants who were already disqualified before they were ever connected to a lie detector.

If convicted as charged, Dhaliwal faces up to six years in state prison.
