Big Island police looking for assault and kidnapping suspects

HILO (HawaiiNewsNow) - Big Island police are looking for two suspects in connection with an assault and kidnapping case, and one of them has already been charged in another violent crime.

Officials say a 20-year old man reported being attacked outside a restaurant on Kamehameha Avenue shortly before midnight Wednesday.

Police are looking for 24-year old Turner Kaimana Au of Hilo and 21-year old Waylen Keone Carenio Jr. of Kamuela.

In December, Carenio was charged with manslaughter in the death of Roy Williams.

The two men were involved in a fight outside Karma Hawaii sports bar.

Williams fell and hit his head.

Carenio was later freed on $50,000 bail.

Police say Carenio and Au may be armed and should not be approached.
