Four women were injured Friday morning in a single-vehicle crash in Maili.
The crash occurred at 11 a.m. at the intersection of Kaukamana Street and Farrington Highway fronting Maili Beach Park, according to city Emergency Medical Services officials. Lifeguards responded to triage the patients until paramedics arrived and took over, they said.
Paramedics treated and transported a woman in her 20s and a 30-year-old woman in serious condition, and two women in their 20s in stable condition.
Man charged with abusing girlfriend
A 28-year-old man has been charged for allegedly abusing his 32-year-old girlfriend in Kaimuki.
Anthony L. Pineda-Akiona was charged Monday with four counts of felony abuse of a family or household member. His bail has been set at $50,000.
At about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, police said, the woman woke up to Pineda-Akiona standing over her at their Hilo Place home.
The woman told police he was upset because she didn’t answer his phone calls. Pineda-Akiona then allegedly took her cellphone. She followed him out of the house to Wilhelmina Rise, where they got involved in an argument, according to a court document.
The argument escalated, and Pineda-Akiona allegedly grabbed the woman’s hair and threw her to the ground. The court document said she sustained bruises and abrasions to her thigh and lower back and scrapes to her palms, elbows and knees.
Police said the woman returned home, and Pineda-Akiona followed her and took her wallet and car keys. When she asked for her wallet, police said Pineda-Akiona struck her face with it.
The victim left the residence, flagged down a motorist and used the driver’s cellphone to call police.
Police arrived and arrested Pineda-Akiona.
Criminal and court records show he was previously convicted twice for misdemeanor abuse of a family or household member.
In one of the two cases, Pineda-Akiona was convicted of abuse in August involving the same victim. A Honolulu district judge sentenced him to two days in jail with credit for time served and two years of probation. The judge also ordered him to take anger management and domestic violence intervention classes.
