Third man arrested in Wai'anae beating death

Advertiser Staff

A third person suspected in Friday's beating death of a 46-year-old Wai'anae man surrendered to police this morning.

Homicide detectives were in Wai'anae looking for the man when he presented himself for arrest at HPD's Alapai Street headquarters shortly after 11:30 a.m., police said.

Two other men wanted in connection with the beating surrendered last night.

None has been charged but all were arrested on suspicion of second degree murder.

The trio are suspected in the beating death of Roger Haudenshild in the parking lot of the Wai'anae Market.

Police believe Haudenshild was riding his bicycle near the Wai'anae McDonald's when he got into a traffic altercation with a man in a sports car. A fistfight broke out. After the fight the man said he would return with "his boys," police said.

Haudenshild rode his bike about 100 yards to the market. A short time later, a white Ford sedan pulled into the lot and three men jumped out, police said.

The men threw Haudenshild to the ground and savagely beat him, police said.

A witness said Haudenshild was unconscious, but the men continued to stomp on his head and kick him.

Haudenshild, a Wai'anae resident, died at the Wai'anae Coast Comprehensive Health Center.
