Suspect in Iwilei sexual assault arrested

  • COURTESY HONOLULU CRIMESTOPPERS

    The suspect in an Iwilei sexual assault is described as being in his 20s, 5 feet, 3 inches, and 140 pounds with a medium build. He was wearing a black hoodie and black shorts at the time.

Police arrested a 25-year-old man this afternoon on suspicion of kidnapping and third-degree sexual assault.

At about 1:30 p.m. police located the man near the intersection of Kuwili Street and Iwilei Road and arrested him on suspicion of kidnapping and sex assault.

Police said this man is suspected of sexually assaulting a 49-year-old woman at 6 a.m. Wednesday who was waiting at a bus stop at 866 Iwilei Road.

The suspect dragged her across the street into a building and sexually assaulted her, then fled in an unknown direction, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300.

Correction: Honolulu police issued an update saying that the suspect was arrested near the intersection of Kuwili Street and Iwilei Road, and not at the city’s Punawai Rest Stop, as was reported in an earlier version of this story.
