TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a New Jersey Army National Guard member sexually abused a woman at a military base in the state earlier this year.

Ioannis Karazoupis (Eye-OWE-niss Kah-rah-ZOOP-is), of Flemington, was arrested Wednesday at his home by U.S. Marshals and was due to make his initial court appearance later in the day. It was not known if he has retained an attorney.

Prosecutors say the alleged abuse occurred May 4 at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, while Karazoupis’ unit was there for training.

They say the 27-year-old engaged in a sexual act with a person who was “incapable of appraising the nature of the conduct” and was physically incapable of declining participation and communicating unwillingness to engage in a sexual act.

Karazoupis could face life in prison if convicted.
