Soldiers at Fort Sill in Oklahoma have been suspended from duty pending the outcome of an investigation into a female soldier’s allegations that she was sexually assaulted, the Army post’s commanding general said.
Late last month, the soldier who was training at the post reported that she was the victim of sexual assault involving Fort Sill cadre members, Maj. Gen. Ken Kamper said in a statement Thursday.
The woman made a formal complaint on March 27, but it is unclear when the alleged assault took place. Kamper also didn’t say how many people are alleged to have been involved, only referring to them as members of a cadre. He said they were suspended from their normal duties, removed from any trainee environment and are all presumed innocent pending a full and thorough investigation.”
Kamper said the assault was immediately reported to law enforcement and is being investigated by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command.
