IWAKUNI, Yamaguchi -- Police arrested a 31-year-old U.S. Marine stationed here on Sunday for trespassing and illegally carrying a knife in public.

Police say Captain Joseph R. Coenen stationed at U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, climbed up on the roof of a storehouse adjacent to a residence near the base in Iwakuni, Yamaguchi Prefecture, at around 3 a.m. on Sunday.

Coenen ran away from the scene after he was spotted by a local resident. The suspect was in possession of an eight-centimeter folding knife when he was caught by local police about 30 minutes later, according to investigators.

The suspect has reportedly admitted to the charges and apologized, and appeared to be drunk during questioning, police said.
