Police in South Korea arrested three U.S. soldiers accused of sexually harassing and assaulting employees of a water park while intoxicated on May 31.

Three 2nd Infantry Division soldiers based at Camp Casey allegedly shot a water pistol filled with alcohol at patrons and stole their food, Stars and Stripes reported.

Police report that one of the soldiers allegedly touched a female employee’s shoulder, waist and back. Another soldier reportedly grabbed the hand of another female employee and refused to let go, telling her that she was “sexy.”

When a male employee tried to intervene, the soldiers allegedly punched him in the face. They allegedly refused the orders from South Korean police who were called to the scene, punching one officer and spitting in his face, police said.

Citing Army officials, Stripes identified the soldiers as an unnamed private, a private first class, and a specialist with the 210th Field Artillery Brigade.

A 2ID statement quoted Col. Michael J. Lawson, commander of the 210th Field Artillery Brigade, saying the unit, “does not condone or tolerate misconduct.” He promised “full cooperation with the Korean National Police, and appropriate actions.”
