Police issue sketch of UH sex-assault suspect

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:54 a.m. HST, Mar 15, 2012

Police are asking for the public's help in finding a man wanted in connection with a sex assault at the University of Hawaii at Manoa's Hale Ilima dormitory over the weekend.

Police said the victim entered a dorm elevator at about 12:20 a.m. Saturday and was confronted by an unknown male who pinned her and sexually assaulted her. She kneed the attacker and fled when the elevator doors opened, police said.

The suspect is described as a man in  his 20s, between 6 feet 2 and 6 feet 4 and 180 and 200 pounds, with dark, short wavy hair, dark eyes and bushy eyebrows.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 955-8300 or "CRIME" on a cell phone.

Exactly, and I was thinking the same thing. But maybe the sketch is to be the indicator of the race. However, it doesn't.

What is the whole point of providing a "description" if the perp's race is not provided? This is nothing but political correctness run amok. Good luck getting tips from the public.

Instead of drawings, UH needs to install security cameras all over campus. So many incidents, but can't catch anyone. Cameras at dorm entrances, public areas, etc. Victims descriptions won't help. They're terrified, and most times these attacks are over in minutes. Spend some money and buy cameras.

Yet another reason the Regents (and State) need to talk about a University police force. What are the student fees being used for? What happened to the cameras and other security measures implemented in the "refurbished" dorms that allow another criminal to escape the campus? Almost the entire female population of the campus is frightened, and yet no armed, uniformed officers with training are on patrol. My thoughts are with the victim.

Leave it to Hawaii local people, to make a joke about a serious issue. Those idiots below that have nothing helpful or productive to say, Guess what You are the joke. That's why visitors to the island think people like you are either Inbred, or very very uneducated. I lean more towards both and throw in Ignorant. Everything is a joke to Hawaii, that's why they are in the position they are in now. A 3rd World State.
