Sailors in TJ Prison for Attacking Prostitutes

Two Navy sailors were in a Tijuana prison Saturday facing charges of attempted homicide for attacking two prostitutes and a hotel security employee Thursday night in Tijuana, the Baja California Attorney General's Office said.

Navy Region Southwest officials identified the two sailors as Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Joshua Dockery, 27, and Aviation Structural Mechanic 3rd Class Jarrett C. Monzingo, 22., the Navy Times reported.

The Navy confirmed both sailors were based in San Diego.

According to municipal police, one of the women was choked, while the other woman and the hotel employee both suffered stab wounds. They also said the men were found with bloody knives on them.

The arrests come six weeks after top Navy and Marine Corps commanders ordered more restrictions for service members who want to visit Mexico.

Whether it's business or pleasure all service members must first get approval to travel to Mexico.  If they're cleared, they must take a safety class and take a buddy with them when they go.  If the policy is broken Marines may be punished by losing rank or pay.
