Man charged with repeat abuse of a woman in Nanakuli

A 32-year-old man is facing multiple counts of assaulting and abusing a 25-year-old woman in Nanakuli, police said.

Kekoa Vierra was charged Friday with nine felonies including six second-degree assault charges, two abuse of a family or household member offenses, and one count of first-degree terroristic threatening.

His bail was set at $250,000.

Police said from Aug. 13 to 27, Vierra repeatedly assaulted the woman with a dangerous weapon, causing substantial injuries. Court documents said one of the alleged assaults happened in April and that Vierra also choked the woman.

Prosecutors said if Vierra were convicted of any of the charges he would be eligible for an extended sentence because he is a persistent offender with two felony convictions on his record.

On Thursday, police arrested Vierra near Farrington Highway and Hakimo Road.
