Man arrested in Beretania beating

Advertiser Staff

Police arrested a 42-year-old man Sunday night 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.

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 nunchaku sticks used in martial arts training.

The man told police he ran down the street after being hit and yelled for help. Police arrested the younger man on suspicion of second-degree assault.

The man who filed the complaint was treated and released for bruises and a cut on his head.


A 21-year-old man was arrested Sunday evening in Waipahu on suspicion of various felony charges in connection with an attack on two people and damage to a car.

A 40-year-old woman and 27-year-old man told police that a man struck them before they were able to get into the woman's car.

The woman said that once she got in the car, the assailant reached through the driver's-side window and tried to pull her out by the hair. The woman's 23-month-old daughter was in the back seat.

The woman said the attacker eventually released her, but punched in the rear driver's side window, showering the toddler with pieces of broken glass.

Police were called to the scene on Awanei Street and arrested the suspect on suspicion of assault, terroristic threatening and criminal property damage.


Maui police arrested three people Friday in connection with the sale of marijuana at Lahaina's Banyan Tree Park.

A 30-year-old woman also was arrested but later released, said Capt. Charles Hirata.

The suspects were arrested after allegedly selling marijuana to undercover officers, he said.
