2 civilians somehow breached an Air Force base, and were only found when one of them told airmen she’d been kidnapped
Security forces discovered a woman and her alleged assailant, who are both civilians with no military affiliation, on Nellis Air Force Base in southern Nevada.
The base acknowledged that sentries didn’t follow proper procedures at the base’s entry, and an unconfirmed report suggests the pair drove right onto the base without stopping at the sentry post.
The Las Vegas Metro Police are investigating the kidnapping and sexual assault allegations.
Around 5 a.m. on Wednesday morning, two airmen at Nellis Air Force Base in southern Nevada reported they had been approached by a woman claiming she had been kidnapped and sexually assaulted. When security forces responded to the victim, she gave a description of the alleged assailant’s vehicle, according to Rebekah Mattes, a spokeswoman for the base.
The vehicle — and the alleged assailant — were located in a parking lot of the base’s dining facility. Security forces discovered both the woman and her alleged assailant are civilians with no military affiliation and handed both individuals over to the Las Vegas Metro Police, Mattes said, in a strange breach of a military base’s access.
Details of the incident first started to emerge on Air Force amn/nco/snco, a popular yet unofficial Facebook page. The original post, which included a video that was viewed some 83,000 times and garnered 300 comments, included unconfirmed details and alleged that the assailant was Russian. The post also stated that the alleged victim had a Russian accent.
Mattes told Business Insider both individuals are US citizens.
Later, the Facebook page was updated with the leaked operational report from base security forces and offers unconfirmed details about the breach.
