By Star-Advertiser staff


An Ewa Beach man who allegedly beat, choked and threatened to kill his roommate Sunday morning has been charged with three counts of abuse of a household member and one count of second-degree terroristic threatening.

The 28-year-old suspect, of a Kilaha Street address, made his first appearance in District Court on Tuesday. He is being held at Oahu Community Center on $5,000 bail. The suspect had originally also been arrested on suspicion of attempted second-degree attempted murder but prosecutors chose not to pursue that charge.

According to police, the suspect punched his roommate, a 26-year-old man, and knocked him out around 7:10 a.m. Sunday. He then choked the victim until he passed out, police said. The roommate regained consciousness to find the suspect still choking him. Police arrested the suspect shortly after noon Sunday.
