Guam - A lieutenant colonel in the Guam Army National Guard was arrested by police on Tuesday.
Joseph Stephen Babauta Limtiaco was arrested by criminal investigation detectives for assault and harassment.
He was processed and released.
Police have not released any information about the reasons for the arrest but Adjutant General Benny Paulino issued a statement this afternoon saying the guard takes this assault case and all allegations very seriously.
Because the incident is currently under investigation, the general says the Guard cannot comment on any details but looks forward to complete resolution of the matter.
