BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) - A big island man arrested in a child sex assault case is wanted yet again.

Police are trying to track down Samson Perez also known as Samson Kahumoku.

He's wanted for reckless driving and eluding police.

Last September he was arrested after a child at "Hilo Union School" told police she had been sexually assaulted on campus.

Perez was released pending further investigation in that case.

Now police are trying to track him down in this latest incident which happened two weeks ago.

Police ask that anyone with information on his whereabouts call the Police Department's non-emergency line at 935-3311. Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona.
