ENTERPRISE, AL (WSFA) - A foreign national who was training as a Fort Rucker flight school student will have to surrender his passport before he can be released on bond.

Talal Mohammed Alkharraz, 22, was arrested and transported to the Coffee County Jail on December 29, 2010 on a Sodomy 1st Degree charge. Alkharraz is a citizen of Saudi Arabia, but was at Ft. Rucker for flight training.

Bond was set at $15,000 on the condition that Alkharraz surrender his passport to the Enterprise Police. A second option was also offered allowing Alkarraz to be released on $1,000 if he surrendered his passport and wore a GPS monitor. He remained in jail at last check.

Authorities would only say that Alkharraz was an acquaintance of the victim in the case and that the victim is also a male.

The Associated Press reports that court records show the victim was either mentally or physically incapacitated.

The AP also confirmed with Army officials that the incident did not occur on Ft. Rucker's property.

The Office of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement has subsequently placed a detainer on the suspect as well.
