Marine accused of raping young teen

Date Posted: 2008-02-11

A 38-year-old Marine is in police custody this morning, charged with the Sunday evening rape of a 14-year-old girl.
The incident began about 8:30 p.m. last night in Okinawa City’s Goya area, when a man on a motorcycle stopped in front of Koza Music Town and began talking to a group of eight junior high school girls. One of the girls, Okinawa City Police say, accepted his offer of a ride on his motorcycle, and they drove away.
A police emergency was declared about 10:30 p.m. after the girl’s parents, worried about her not returning home, called their daughter’s cell phone to ask where she was. When she said “Oh, my God. I can’t get out of the car” and the cell phone abruptly shut off, the parents called police. An island wide call went to all police stations and a search began for the young teenager.
Police checking the Chatan Araha Beach parking area spotted the girl getting out of a car at 10:50 p.m., and they rescued the shaken youngster. The abductor had fled, and police began searching for him. The girl, still in shock, told police the man had initially given her a motorcycle ride, then put her in a car and drove her to the secluded location. She described her assailant as a foreigner and told police “he did rape me”.
Police apprehended the suspect, and took him into custody. The girl reportedly identified the man, telling police “Yes, that’s him”. The man, tentatively identified by authorities as Tyrone Hadnott, a 38-year-old Marine, admitted taking the girl, but denied the rape allegation. “No, I didn’t rape her,” he told police. “I just tried to kiss her. That’s all.”
