Burglary suspect shot by police is charged with property crimes


Authorities Thursday charged a 35-year-old burglary suspect who was shot multiple times by police with several offenses.

Police arrested Amery Kahale-Sugimura Tuesday on suspicion of five counts of first-degree attempted murder, two counts of auto theft, first-degree burglary and four counts of criminal property damage, after he allegedly drove a stolen pickup truck toward police officers and assaulted a resident at his Aiea home.

But prosecutors did not charge him with attempted murder. Kahale-Sugimura was charged with two counts of auto theft, first-degree burglary, first-degree unauthorized entry into a dwelling, and drug offenses.

His bail was set at $250,000 bail.

Kahale-Sugimura remains hospitalized.

On Tuesday, officers spotted the 35-year-old burglary suspect at an Aiea home. He fled on a stolen motorcycle, crashed it at Alvah Scott Elementary School, fled to a nearby home, assaulted the resident, and attempted to flee in the resident’s pickup truck.

He allegedly reversed the truck, accelerating into two officers. But no one was seriously injured. The officers and the resident were treated at the scene.
