A U.S. Navy member was arrested aboard an aircraft carrier in Japan and brought to the Las Vegas Valley to face child sexual assault charges, officials announced Wednesday.
Sakari Macrae-Hodgin was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Wednesday. Jail records indicate Macrae-Hodgin is 22, but a U.S. Marshals Service news release identified him as a 20-year-old.
He faces five child sexual assault charges, including four counts of sexual assault of a child under 14, according to online court records.
The Naval Criminal Investigative Service arrested Macrae-Hodgin aboard the USS Ronald Reagan, which is stationed at a U.S. naval base in Yokosuka, Japan, the release said.
The Metropolitan Police Department’s sexual assault unit requested assistance from the Marshals Service to arrest Macrae-Hodgin, the release said. Online court records indicate the crimes Macrae-Hodgin is suspected of happened in North Las Vegas.
Macrae-Hodgin remained in the detention center on Wednesday on $500,000 bail, court records show.
