HAUULA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - U.S. Marshals and the FBI arrested an Oahu man wanted in Arizona on suspicion of child molestation.

Authorities located and arrested Ronnie Chisholm, 50, at his Hauula home Monday evening. The construction worker is accused of engaging in various sexual acts and sexual molestation with a minor – who was 6 years old at the time – in Arizona in the late 1980s. Chisholm was in a relationship with the female victim's mother while living in Maricopa County, U.S. Marshals said.

In January 2000, the Maricopa County Attorney's office filed a grand jury indictment for Chisholm, who had already left Arizona for Hawaii. The county then issued an arrest warrant in November 2014 and immediately sought assistance from the FBI and U.S. Marshals to track him down.

Chisholm is charged with two counts of sexual conduct with a minor and three counts of molestation of a child, according to U.S. Marshals.

Authorities were able to locate Chisholm at his home on Kaipapau Loop and he now remains in police custody pending a court appearance and extradition hearing back to Arizona.
