Sheriffs catch
escapee in Nuuanu


State deputy sheriffs captured prison escapee Daphne Capol yesterday and also arrested two people who allegedly helped her.

Sheriffs located and arrested Capol, 31, and Dee Jay Donnarumma, 44, near the Liliuokalani Botanical Garden in Nuuanu yesterday at about 4:15 p.m. Earlier in the day, sheriffs also arrested Nathan Park, 41, in Waikiki.

Public safety officials said Donnarumma and Park were arrested for parole revocation and allegedly either helped Capol escape or helped her since her Monday escape from the Women's Community Correctional Center in Kailua.

Prison officials said Capol ran away from her 9 a.m. landscaping class, scaled a fence, then disappeared into the Pohakupu neighborhood that borders the prison.

Another fugitive who police said has been with Capol since her escape, identified as Jacqueline Lokelani Mahoe, 51, remains at large.

Police said Mahoe was seen with Capol and Donnarumma when they were arrested but escaped by running down a canal near the park. She is described as 5 feet tall and 110 pounds, with a slim build, brown eyes and short, black hair.

Mahoe was last seen wearing a light-blue T-shirt, blue jeans and athletic shoes, is believed to be operating a silver van, and is known to frequent Leeward Oahu. Mahoe has eight felony convictions for burglary, theft, forgery and drug offenses and is wanted on a parole revocation warrant.

Police said Capol had been returned to the women's prison last week because of a probation violation.

Anyone with information on Mahoe's whereabouts is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or by dialing *CRIME on a cellular phone.
