An Oahu grand jury indicted a 35 year-old man on 15 charges stemming from a home invasion robbery that ended when the suspect was shot by officers after allegedly trying to run them over in a stolen truck in Aiea.

Amery Kahale-Sugimura, also known as Jon Edward Dudoit, was out on bail Oct. 29  when he allegedly assaulted a 68-year-old Aiea resident and tried to get away in the resident's truck, striking two officers.

According to the prosecutor's office the grand jury indictment returned Wednesday included:

>>First-degree burglary.

>> Two charges of unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle.

>>Unauthorized entry into a dwelling.

>> Three charges of first-degree terroristic threatening.

>>Two first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer charges.

>>Two counts of second-degree assault.

>> Two drug charges.

Kahale-Sugimura is being held in Oahu Community Correctional Center pending arraignment in Circuit Court on the new charges.

When Kahale-Sugimura was shot and arrested Tuesday, he was out on $40,000 bail awaiting Nov. 27 trial in an auto theft case after a similar altercation with police in September after allegedly stealing a motorcycle.

Last week police spotted Kahale-Sugimura at a Heleconia Place house in Aiea at 3:31 p.m.

He fled on a stolen motorcycle, crashed it at Alvah Scott Elementary School, then ran to a nearby house on Moanalua Road, police said.

Kahale-Sugimura hit a 68-year-old male resident in the head and entered the house, police said. While officers surrounded the house, Kahale-Sugimura jumped into the resident's pickup truck.  He quickly reversed, accelerating the vehicle, and drove toward several officers, hitting two, who were not seriously injured, police said.

Four officers fired several shots, striking him multiple times, police said. He was taken to the hospital in serious but stable condition.

Kahale-Sugimura had been convicted of 14 felonies, mostly robbery and ither property crimes,
