KALIHI (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 63-year-old man is in Honolulu police custody accused of harassing and assaulting passengers on a city bus in Kalihi Saturday.

Investigators say the suspect began harassing a 14-year-old girl on the bus, so two other passengers -- a 25-year-old male and a 25-year-old female -- intervened. The suspect then allegedly assaulted the adults who tried to help, and also took a swing at the 40-year-old male bus driver.

Responding officers arrested Theodore Maddy, Jr. on suspicion of third-degree assault, harassment, and interference with the operator of a public transit vehicle.
