Prosecutors charged a 22-year-old man who allegedly bit off part of a man’s ear during a fight in Kalihi.
Sairos Nickepwi was charged Sunday with second-degree assault and harassment. His bail is set at $12,000.
Police said a suspect and a 21-year-old man were involved in a physical altercation in the 1300 block of Liliha Street at about 5:20 a.m. Saturday.
