Man jailed after ransacking home, assaulting police officers

By Star-Advertiser Staff


A man who violated a restraining order barring him from the Salt Lake house where his elderly mother, his sister and her family live, and then assaulted two police officers, is being held on $100,000 at Oahu Community Correctional Center.

Hiram Simafranca, 33, for whom no permanent address was reported, entered the Aila Street home just before midnight on Sept. 4 and ransacked it, according to a court affidavit.

A neighbor called police,  who tried to arrest Simafranca, the affidavit said. But Simafranca resisted arrest, wrestling with one and then punching and biting another, before fleeing on foot.

Simafranca was arrested Tuesday. He is being held pending a hearing on charges of first-degree assault of a police officer and unauthorized entry into a home.
