Late last month, a soldier trained for the position "reported being a victim of sexual harassment involving members of the Fort Sill gang," Maj. General Ken Kamper in a statement Thursday.

The woman made the formal complaint on March 27, but it is unclear when the incident took place. Kamper also did not say how many people were allegedly involved, just calling them party members. He said: "They have been suspended from their normal duties, removed from any of their training facilities and all are presumed innocent pending further investigation."

Camper said the attack was "immediately reported to law enforcement" and was being investigated by the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command.

Fort Sill on a 145-kilometer (145-kilometer) installation southwest of Oklahoma City. It is home to about 53,000 people, including 20,000 soldiers and personnel, and is a prominent weapons training center.

During a press conference, Kamper did not directly answer the question of whether the incident was an unexpected incident in the post, according to the Constitution. Fort Sill officials did not immediately respond to Sunday's requests for comment.

Kamper said the soldier who reported the attack was immediately linked to the victims' services. "We are proud of the courage he has shown in addressing these allegations," he said.

The spread of sexual harassment and attacks on the military became a major concern for the country last year after the assassination of the Spc. Vanessa Guillen at the Texas post office.

The woman made the formal complaint on March 27, but it is unclear when the incident took place. Kamper also did not say how many people were allegedly involved, just calling them party members. He said: "They have been suspended from their normal duties, removed from any of their training facilities and all are presumed innocent pending further investigation."

Military investigators say Guillen, 20, was shot dead at Fort Hood by a fellow soldier who later committed suicide. Guillen's family said he was sexually abused by the soldier, but the Society says there is no evidence of that.
