Honolulu Police Department Crimestoppers

The 50-foot fishing vessel Kolea ran aground yesterday on the reef about 800 feet off Diamond Head. Five crew members swam ashore after the 3:30 a.m. accident. The Coast Guard and the state Health Department planned to monitor the vessel in case of a fuel spill. Officials also were concerned about the vessel's fish cargo attracting sharks to the area.


Traffic accident cuts power in Palisades

Power in Pacific Palisades was cut off for more than six hours yesterday morning after a car knocked down a utility pole near the corner of Komo Mai Drive and Waimano Home Road at about 5 a.m.

Ten Hawaiian Electric customers were without power while crews made repairs. The crews replaced the utility pole and a damaged transformer and restored electricity at about 11:30 a.m.

No one was injured seriously in the crash.

Waipahu juvenile accused of assault

A 15-year-old Waipahu boy was arrested for assault Wednesday after allegedly beating his neighbor for giving him "stink eye."

Police said the boy called the neighbor, a 31-year-old man, out of his home about 6 p.m. He then rushed at the man, punching him in the face and knocking him to the ground.

Police said the boy then kicked his neighbor several times, causing serious and substantial bodily injury. The neighbor was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated and released.

The boy was released without charges pending further investigation.


Big Island escapee is caught and charged

An escapee from the Hale Nani Correctional Center is back in police custody after his second escape in four days.

Douglas Cordeiro Jr., 21, escaped from Hale Nani on Sunday and was captured Wednesday after an anonymous tip.

Police said Cordeiro was arrested after police stopped the green van he was driving on Nene Street in South Hilo.

Police said Cordeiro gave the officer a false ID, but his true identity was discovered after he was taken to the police station. While at the station, Cordeiro escaped briefly but was captured in the police complex.

Cordeiro was charged with two counts of escape and one count of driving without a license. He is being held in the Hilo police cellblock in lieu of $4,000 bail.
