A 32-year-old Schofield Barracks soldier was arrested Tuesday for allegedly taking a purse from a woman in Pearl City on New Year's Eve.

The incident occurred just before midnight when the male suspect allegedly confronted the 29-year-old woman as she sat in her car, according to a police report.

Police said the suspect used force to take the purse. The victim was injured while fighting back and the suspect fled with her purse.

The Army soldier faces charges of second-degree robbery and unauthorized entry into a vehicle.

Sad, yes, but don't forget he was a civilian before becoming a soldier and may have brought his bad behavior with him when he enlisted in the Army.

He probably got the news that the military is only getting 1% increase in their pay while unionized government workers get higher pay increase. Sad state of affair, but this current government cares more about ILLEGAL aliens than the men and women serving our country.

Really, a 32-year old SOLDIER? Does the U.S. Army screen at all for priors, psychological profile, or anything else before our tax dollars pay for everything for these guys? Usually, a person doesn't start a life of crime at 32, so at this age, he's been doing this for years. Shameful and disgusting that he's in our military.

I also question the screening process of the military today. My neighbors next door consist mostly of rotating enlisted military soldiers and I can say over the years that the character quality and behaviors of these soldiers have certainly gone down. The base commanders were once sensitive and cooperative to the community but they now could give a rats a___s about the soldier's behavior and conduct in the community unless it makes the news.

People wonder why there is a dislike to Service personel when they are stationed here and say that they don't like it her for their tour of duty. They should be allowed outside of their barracks for leisure time. Let them suffer with being confined to their barracks 24/7/365....

Clum56, did it ever occur to you that most crimes in the state are committed by local residents? Perhaps we also should confine them to their homes as you suggest for military personnel.
