HAGATNA, Guam — A U.S. sailor pleaded not guilty Wednesday during an arraignment on charges he sexually assaulted and beat a 47-year-old woman in May, according to a record of Guam Superior Court proceedings.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Doyle Lamont Perry, assigned to the USS Frank Cable, was indicted June 7 on three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, three counts of second-degree criminal conduct, three counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, assault with intent to commit criminal conduct, aggravated assault and terrorizing.

Perry pleaded not guilty to all counts. His next appearance in court is to be at 10 a.m. June 26. He is being held on $100,000 bail.

According to court documents, the woman was found injured and unable to move around 5:30 a.m. on May 27 by two fishermen on the beach next to the Guam governor’s office complex at Adelup.

The woman told police she had met a man in nearby Anigua who persuaded her to go with him to a place where they could talk. She told police that after they arrived at the Adelup complex and talked briefly, the man beat and sexually assaulted her.

Earlier that morning, according to documents, police had stopped a vehicle leaving the Adelup complex. The driver matched the woman’s description of the man she said had attacked her.

That driver was identified as Perry and the officer noted that he had sand on his face, neck and clothing when he was stopped. The officer stated that Perry appeared intoxicated and it was recommended that he park his car and have a friend pick him up.

With the assistance of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Guam police later located Perry and searched his car, according to the magistrate’s complaint. Police reportedly found evidence in the car and arrested Perry.
