According to the Daily Yomiuri
Police arrested a U.S. sailor Monday for allegedly trespassing in a house in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, in the early hours of the morning.
Manuel Silva, a 20-year-old crew member of the USS George Washington, is suspected of entering the property of a 72-year-old woman at about 2:50 a.m. The sailor has admitted the charges, according to Kanagawa prefectural police.
Police received three emergency calls around 1:30 a.m. from people living near the woman, saying such things as a stranger was ringing their doorbell. Policemen found Silva at the scene and tried to question him, but the sailor ran away and entered the woman’s house, according to police officials.
Alcohol was detected during a breath test of the suspect, the officials said.
The incident occurred despite a night curfew imposed on all U.S. servicemen between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. following the rape of a Japanese woman by two U.S. sailors in Okinawa Prefecture in October.
It’s only been ten days since GI KOREA predicted that a curfew would not solve anything because it is a statistical impossibility.
