A 22-year-old man, awaiting trial for harassing people in Manoa Valley District Park last weekend, was picked up again in the Keeaumoku area for terroristic threatening.
Yama Fazzari was arrested Tuesday and charged with first-degree terroristic threatening. His bail was set at $25,000.
The latest incident took place at South King and Sheridan streets, police said.
Fazzari was released Monday by a District Court judge after being arrested Feb. 22 for allegedly picking a fight with a group of people at Manoa Valley District Park. His District Court trial for the petty misdemeanor offense is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. April 21.
The District Court judge granted Fazzari supervised release over the objections of a deputy city prosecutor. The court also rejected a request that Fazzari undergo substance abuse assessment and treatment.
Fazzari also was ordered to stay away from Manoa Valley District Park.
Police said Fazzari is believed to be the person whom the Manoa Valley Neighborhood Security Watch members said been harassing residents near the Manoa Marketplace and other areas since early February.
On Feb. 7, according to the neighborhood watch, the suspect allegedly attacked a man three times on East Manoa Road.
On Feb. 19. a man fitting Fazzari's description followed a couple, who had given a ride to a female University of Hawaii student to protect her from the man, to the Manoa Market Place. When the couple stopped behind a vehicle, the man got out, yelled at the driver's side window and banged on the car's hood. However, the suspect fled before police arrived.
Fazzari's conviction record includes three petty misdemeanors and misdemeanors for third degree assault, second-degree assault and terroristic threatening as well two violations for disorderly conduct. His last convictions was 2011 for disorderly conduct, third-degree assault and second-degree terroristic threatening.
However, police said, despite numerous reports posted by the Manoa security watch on its website, only two people have filed police reports.
