Man arrested after punching in windshield

Advertiser Staff

A 22-year-old Honolulu woman was left with a deep cut on her chin after a homeless man punched her car's windshield with his fist last night, causing it to fall into the vehicle.

The woman said she was stopped at the intersection of Dillingham Boulevard and North King Street when the man, 34, walked up to her car about 11:10 p.m. and hit the windshield.

The man ran away from the scene and the woman went to The Queen's Medical Center where she was treated and released.

Police said that while the victim was at Queen's she spotted the suspect who had checked himself in for treatment of an undisclosed ailment. The suspect ran from the hospital when the victim pointed him out, but police caught up with him minutes later at the corner of South Beretania and Punchbowl streets.

He was arrested for suspicion of first-degree criminal property damage and third-degree assault.

Man threatens bus driver, arrested for felony

A man who got into an argument with his girlfriend at a city bus stop last night now faces much bigger problems after he allegedly threatened a bus driver who stopped to ask the woman if she needed help.

Police said the 46-year-old bus driver rolled up on the bus stop at Notley and Middle streets about 10:15 p.m. and noticed the disagreement.

Police said the driver asked the woman if she was OK and whether she needed help from the police. The 20-year-old boyfriend then approached the driver, threatened him and challenged him to a fight, police said.

Police were called to the scene and arrested the boyfriend for suspicion of interfering with the operator of a public transit vehicle, which is a felony.
