HONOLULU (KHON2) — Two men are being investigated in two separate abuse cases on Oahu.

According to the Honolulu Police Department, a 46-year-old man allegedly placed his hand across a 29-year-old woman’s throat. He applied pressure, which restricted her airway. This happened in the Waikiki area on June 25. The suspect was located and arrested without incident for abuse-strangulation the next day.

He remains in police custody, pending investigation.

In Waipahu, a 22-year-old woman reported to police that she was being assaulted by her 20-year-old boyfriend. She reported that it was in the presence of their child who is under the age of 14. This happened on June 26, around 11:30 p.m.

The boyfriend was later located in the morning on June 27, and was arrested without incident for abuse of a family or household member while in the presence of a child.

He was charged for the crime and his bail was set at $1,000.
