Army suspends general linked to sex-assault investigation

The Army says it has suspended a two-star general from his duties in Japan for allegedly failing to report or properly investigate an allegation of sexual assault.

The suspended officer, Maj. Gen. Michael T. Harrison, is commanding general of U.S. Army forces in Japan.

The Army said Friday night that he was suspended by the Army chief of staff, Gen. Ray Odierno, and Army Secretary John McHugh. It provided no details about the alleged sexual assault case.

The Army says that until the investigation of Harrison’s role is completed, Maj. Gen. James C. Boozer will take his place in Japan.
