Police seek identity of assault suspect


Hawaii Island police seeking the public’s assistance to identify a male suspect whose identity is unknown.

The man — described as a Caucasian his mid-to-late 20s, 5-feet 9-inches tall, 190 pounds, with a muscular build and light-colored eyes — is wanted for questioning in an assault investigation that occurred Sept. 2 in the early morning hours in the parking lot of Coquis Hideaway Restaurant on Kamehameha Avenue in Hilo.

The department’s sketch artist drew a likeliness of the unknown suspect based on the recollection of a witness.

The investigation stems from an affray resulting in substantial injuries to a male victim after being struck numerous times in the face by two men, including the sketch subject.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect is asked to call the police department’s non-emergency number at (808) 935-3311 or Crime Stoppers at (808) 961-8300.
