A member of the U.S. military has been arrested for drunkenly groping a woman on the street in northern Japan:

The 22-year-old man, stationed at Misawa Air Base in Aomori prefecture, at the northern tip of Japan’s main island, is alleged to have groped the woman on the street early Friday morning, a police spokesman said.

Kyodo news agency said the victim was 19 and was walking home from a friend’s house alone when attacked.

Police declined to give further details and U.S. Forces were not immediately available for comment on an incident that will cause fresh embarrassment.

According to the Japanese language news report in the video above, the man (identified as ジェームス・リトルジョン) came up behind the woman and grabbed her while she was walking down the street. A witness tells the news cameras that her heard the girl give an extremely loud scream. The man fled the scene, but was captured by police an hour later and arrested. He reeked of alcohol at the time of his arrest.
