Honolulu police arrested a prison escapee and are looking for a second suspect in connection with a kidnapping and assault Friday morning in Kapolei.

According to police, the two men entered a Kapolei residence about 8:30 a.m., assaulted a man and woman with a dangerous instrument and forcibly took the woman.

The male victim was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. Police believe the woman is still being held by the suspects. Both victims are identified as being in their 30s.

An Emergency Medical Services report indicated the male victim was assaulted with a baseball bat.

Police arrested one of the suspects in the case, Leslie Dabis, 38, who escaped from Oahu Community Correctional Center on Jan. 14. He was located Friday night in Kalihi.

The other suspect is an unknown man, in his late 20s or early 30s. He is described as 5-feet 8-inches to 6-feet tall, weighing 160 to 180 pounds, with short afro hair and letters and tribal markings tattooed across his upper back.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call 911.

Mind you, knowing that they're being looked for, there's been some disguising going on. This person has now aged themself to look around 80 yrs old, had a sex change operation, shrunk 4 inches, lost 55 pounds, let their hair grow, and had the tattoos removed. To confirm you have the right person, just ask them if they're my mother-in-law and you'll know you have the right person. Despite her denials - accept NO excuses.

Was this ever reported when he originally escaped? In checking the police archives there is no mention of this. Scary to citizens who are unaware of escaped prisoners. So OCCC deemed him non-violent? Are they professionals in violence prediction? Folks, this escape was early in January and only after a crime was committed were citizens made aware he was an escapee. Where is the accountability? Prison needs a long overdue overhaul in administration in my humble opinion.

The escapee that was apprehended is a career criminal. We need to lock up dangerous criminals like him for a longer period of time. This time around, he should be taken off the streets and kept locked behind bars for the rest of his existence.
