SEOUL, July 3 (Yonhap) -- A senior navy officer was put under emergency arrest on Tuesday on charges of sexually assaulting a female subordinate while under the influence of alcohol, a Navy official said.

The Navy authorities have dismissed the rear admiral lower half, whose name has been withheld from the media, from his post at a base in Changwon, South Gyeongsang Province, for the crime that allegedly took place last Wednesday.

The Navy learned of the case after the victim informed her immediate supervisor.
