1 charged, 1 arrested in assault cases

A 47-year-old Waianae man has been charged with raping a 13-year-old girl, police said.

Be Van Nguyen, who was arrested at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, was charged with first-degree sexual assault and made his initial court appearance Friday. His bail was set at $25,000.

Police said Nguyen raped the girl several times since 2007.

In an unrelated case, a 64-year-old Kalihi man was arrested this week in connection with the alleged groping of a 14-year-old girl.

The suspect assaulted the girl multiple times since 2007 and gave her pornographic material, police said.

He was booked at about 3:30 p.m. Thursday on suspicion of six counts of third-degree sexual assault and one count of promoting pornography for minors.

Suspect in Heeia Kea fight released

A 28-year-old man who was arrested in connection with a Memorial Day fight at Heeia Kea Pier that left a man in critical condition was released Friday, pending investigation.

The man was arrested Thursday night on suspicion of first-degree assault after police asked for the public’s help in finding witnesses to the fight.

Officers responded to a large fight and found an unresponsive man with head injuries near the boat launch area at about 6 p.m. Monday. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Police said they believe a man punched the victim, who fell and hit his head on the asphalt.
