A disturbing sexual assault case that happened in Upcountry Maui last Saturday is getting even more disturbing. Hawaii News Now reports that witnesses say a man who exposed himself in public – at least five times – may be a Maui police officer. Read their account here.
Here is the official report from Maui Police Department PIO Lt. William Juan: “On 05/30/15 beginning at approximately 1251 hours, police received numerous calls regarding a male exposing his genitals and masturbating in a vehicle in the Pukalani Terrace parking lot and the parking lot for the Hannibal Tavares Community Center.
“Callers described the male to be in his 40s to 50s, approximately 200 lbs., driving a green colored Toyota 4Runner. Investigators are pursuing a possible lead provided by at least one of the callers. Five separate Sexual Assault IV cases were initiated and the investigation is ongoing.”
Fourth Degree Sexual Assault in Hawai’i is a misdemeanor. However, the suspect – if found guilty – could be remanded for psychological testing as well as consideration for third degree (or worse) sexual assault violations.
