Man, 28, under investigation in several violent incidents
Hawai'i County police have arrested a South Kona man wanted in connection with a series of crimes, including several violent incidents.
Daniel "Dukie" Abraham, 28, was arrested Tuesday. He was being held at the Kona cellbock while police consider possible kidnapping, terroristic threatening, assault, robbery and car-theft charges.
Detectives are investigating six incidents in which Abraham is a suspect:
• On Sept. 26, 2009, a 25-year-old Hilo man reported that a man punched and kicked him and stole his car.
• On Feb. 16, a 19-year-old Kailua, Kona, man reported that a man used a machete to sever a finger from his left hand and cut the bottom of his right foot.
• On Feb. 16, a 20-year-old Captain Cook woman reported that a man stole her car from her home.
• On Feb. 18, a 41-year-old Hōnaunau man reported that his car was stolen from his home.
• On Feb. 27, a 28-year-old Captain Cook woman reported that a man forced her into a car at gunpoint, took her to a home in Eden Rock, held her there against her will and punched her about the face and body.
• On April 16, a 43-year-old Hōnaunau woman reported that a man stole her sport utility vehicle from a scenic lookout point in South Kona.
After receiving an anonymous tip that the stolen SUV had been seen in the Captain Cook area, police arrested Abraham and another man Tuesday in a parking lot in Captain Cook, where the stolen SUV was parked.
