Hawaii island police are looking for a male suspect who allegedly sexually assaulted a woman in Kona. 

At about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said the woman was walking on Loloku Street in the old industrial area of Kailua-Kona when an unknown man allegedly grabbed her from behind. The suspect punched her and dragged her off the north shoulder of the road near a car dealership and sexually assaulted her. 

He then fled in mauka direction of the street. The suspect is described as a male in his 30s, about 5 foot 7 inches tall and about 200 pounds. He is also said to have medium-length wavy dark hair. Police said the man is possibly homeless.

Police ask anyone with information on the assault and the suspect to call police at 935-3311 or CrimeStoppers at 961-8300. Individuals may also call Det. Tyson Matsumura at 326-4646 ext. 265 or e-mail tmatsumura@co.hawaii.hi.us or Det. Renee Morinaka at ext. 301 or rmorinaka@co.hawaii.hi.us.

Wow, that sketch looks like my loser nephew, I have no idea where he is anymore though. Druggy, alcoholic, most likely homeless to.
