<br /><br />Krystle Marcellus / kmarcellus@staradvertiser.com<br />Asofitu Fio, charged with the rape of a Cedar Street woman, appeared Monday in District Court in Hono­lulu.<br />

The 30-year-old Honolulu man accused of raping three women in their apartments in separate incidents confessed to committing two of the sexual assaults, Deputy City Prosecutor Rochelle Vidinha told a state judge Wednesday afternoon.

An Oahu grand jury returned an indictment Wednesday charging Asofitu Fio with the sexual assaults of all three women.

Circuit Judge Richard Perkins confirmed Fio's $1 million bail.

Vidinha told Perkins that Fio is a violent, sexual predator who punched, choked, smothered and threatened his victims into submission and told them he would kill them if they reported to police.
