Police Beat: Man uses nunchucks in attack
Advertiser StaffPolice last night arrested a 42-year-old man as a suspect in an assault reported by a 44-year-old man.
Police said the two men, who have no home address, have had prior arguments and do not like each other.
The older man told police the younger man approached him about 10:50 p.m. yesterday near the corner of Beretania and Victoria streets and began to hit him with nunchucks, sticks used in martial arts training.
The man told police he ran down the street after being hit and yelled for help.
Police were called and arrested the younger man for suspicion of second-degree assault.
The man who filed the complaint was treated and released for bruises and a cut on his head.
Suspect arrested for attacking two people in car
A 21-year-old man was arrested in Waipahu yesterday evening on suspicion of various felony charges after he allegedly attacked two people and damaged the car they were in.
A 40-year-old woman and 27-year-old man told police the suspect struck them before they were able to get into the woman's car.
The woman said she was able to get into the car, with her 23-month-old daughter in the back seat, when the suspect reached into the car through an open driver's-side window and tried to pull her out by the hair.
She said the suspect eventually released her, but punched in the rear driver's side window, which shattered and showered the toddler with pieces of broken glass.
Police were called to the scene on Awanei Street and arrested the suspect on suspicion of first-degree criminal property damage, unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle, first-degree terroristic threatening, two counts of third-degree assault and driving without a license.
