TOKYO (AP) — Two U.S. sailors accused of raping a woman on the island of Okinawa have been identified as two men stationed at a Texas naval base.
The Navy identified the sailors as Seaman Christopher Browning of Athens, Texas, and Petty Officer 3rd Class Skyler Dozierwalker of Muskogee, Okla. Both are assigned to the Naval Air Station at Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base. Base spokesman Don Ray says both are 23 and enlisted in 2008. They were assigned to the Fort Worth base the same year.
According to Japanese media, they had been drinking before they attacked the woman, in her 20s, who was on her way home before dawn Tuesday.
The two were in Japanese police custody.
