Hawaii County police have charged Jeremy Rios in connection with a carjacking that triggered an all-day manhunt Tuesday.

Rios, 31, was charged Wednesday with second-degree robbery, unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle, resisting an order to stop, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle, two counts of fourth-degree theft and two counts of leaving the scene of an accident.

He was also charged with second-degree assault and second-degree terroristic threatening for an incident that occurred shortly before the carjacking. In that case, a 55-year-old Hilo man received injuries to his face during an assault in the Wainaku area of Hilo.

Bail for Rios was set at $61,500. He was held at Hawaii Community Correctional Center for an unrelated contempt of court warrant.
