A 27-year-old man was charged Tuesday after he allegedly forced his way into a 15-year-old girl’s home and tried to sexually assault her Sunday night in Waipahu.

Jakphyl Riem, of Waipahu, remained at the main police cellblock in lieu of $150,000 bail. He was charged with burglary and kidnapping.

Police said the girl locked herself in her bedroom and called her father as Riem pushed his way into the Pupupuhi Street home, then forced his way into the girl’s bedroom about 10:15 p.m. Sunday.

The girl’s father called police, and responding officers arrested Riem on suspicion of burglary, kidnapping and sexual assault.
