Navy recruiter Juan Jose Pena has been arrested on charges of sexually assaulting a female enlistee.
The 28-year-old sailor, who worked in a Navy recruiting office on Broadway, was arrested by Alamo Heights police Monday for allegedly getting drunk with a Navy enlistee and sexually assaulting her in the recruiting office.
Police told the San Antonio Express-News that Juan Jose Pena was arrested at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Monday. The enlistee’s cousin reportedly witnessed the assault.
The existing Fort Sam Houston Museum was built in 1905 and takes visitors through the history of the Army in San Antonio from establishment of the post in 1845 to present day JBSA-Fort Sam Houston.
Much like other areas of the rapidly-growing military presence in San Antonio, the museum has outgrown its space, and the building was old and deemed not up to standards. The U.S. Army Center of Military History said to shut it down, but Army North invited the museum to relocate to the historic Quadrangle.
