On Oct. 23, the Naha Police Station arrested a 27-year-old U.S. Marine Corps sergeant on the spot for assaulting a man in his 20s in a building with many tenants in the restaurant and bar business in Naha City’s Asato district. The suspect reportedly has denied the charge, saying, “I did not strike the man.” The allegation is that the suspect struck the victim, a bar manager, in the face and chest with his fist at an elevator landing in the building at around 3:00 a.m. on Oct. 23.
