On April 24, Maruo Sykap allegedly used a dangerous instrument to intentionally cause bodily injury to a woman, the indictment said. The 21-year-old was indicted and charged with Assault in the Second Degree. Bail was set at $100,000, but he remains at large.
His brother, Mark Sykap, was indicted and charged with Robbery in the Second Degree. The indictment alleges that the 18-year-old robbed the woman of her belongings after she was assaulted by Maruo.
Mark was arrested near a makeshift memorial on Kalakaua Ave. and Philip St. for his brother, Iremamber, according to the Associated Press. He has been released on $50,000 bond.
The Department of the Prosecuting Attorney will be seeking prison sentences for both men if they are convicted.
