WAHIAWA (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Honolulu police officer is recovering from a hand injury she sustained while trying to arrest a man on an outstanding warrant Friday.
Investigators say the officer was conducting a routine traffic stop in Wahiawa at about 7:30 AM, when she discovered that the driver had a warrant out for him. When she tried to open the driver's side door to make the arrest, the suspect allegedly accelerated forward, trapping the officer's right hand in the window.
The suspect fled the scene, but was located the next day on Higgins Road near Kamehameha Highway by members of HPD's District Two Crime Reduction Unit.
Alika K. Nomura, 40, was booked on suspicion of first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, and misuse of the 911 emergency telephone service. Police did not provide details about the 911 misuse charge.
