U.S. Soldier Rape Arrest

SEOUL () -- A U.S. soldier was arrested Wednesday on charges of the attempted rape of a South Korean woman, the U.S. military command said.


Private Terrence Hines was accused of breaking into the Korean woman's apartment near the U.S. main military compound in central Seoul early Wednesday, a news release said.


South Korean police charged him with attempted rape, assault, housebreaking and breach of the peace.


South Korean police must hand over a U.S. soldier accused of crime to U.S. authorities. The suspect remains under U.S. custody until all court appeals are completed.
