Police say an armed assault was reported early Sunday morning at a Volcano home.

At 4:16 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to a report of a possible burglary in progress at a home on the 11-3700 block of Alii Anela Street in Royal Hawaiian Estates subdivision.

When police arrived, a 25-year-old man told them someone had banged on his door. When the victim opened the door, an unknown man holding what appeared to be a firearm charged toward him and they began fighting. During the struggle, the victim was punched. A 20-year-old woman who tried to intervene also was punched, police said.

The suspect then ran toward the road, where he met another man who fled with him. Shortly thereafter, a vehicle was heard speeding away.

The assailant was described as local, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10 with a heavy build and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, which was partially covering his face. Both victims declined medical treatment.
