Police seek suspects in Hilo assault
Police are investigating an assault early Monday in Hilo and are looking for two suspects, including one who was captured on video surveillance.
At about 1:30 a.m. Monday, police responded to an area near the intersection of Kilauea Avenue and Aupuni Street after receiving a report of an assault. A 51-year-old Hilo man told officers that an unidentified man punched him while the suspect’s male companion held the victim down.
Police recovered surveillance video footage which appears to depict a man wearing a hooded flannel print-type jacket and shirt.
