#Crime - A US naval officer is in Garda custody over an alleged sexual assault in a Dublin hotel, as Navy Times reports.

A spokesperson for the US Embassy confirmed that the alleged incident was reported on Wednesday 22 March while the USS Donald Cook, a destroyer based in southern Spain, was on a scheduled liberty visit to Cobh in Cork Harbour.

The sailor in question has not been charged and it is expected that the US will formally request Irish authorities to relinquish jurisdiction for the US Navy to pursue the matter internally.
