Police searching for two possible sexual assault suspects

KAPOLEI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu Police and Crimestoppers are investigating reports of two attempted sexual assaults that took place on the same day in Kapolei.

Just before 1 a.m. on Wednesday morning, a woman claims a man approached her from behind on Kaiau Avenue near Kama'aha Avenue and pushed her into a bush.

The woman was able to get away, and says her attacker was a man in his 30's with short curly brown hair.

That same day around 11 p.m., a second woman claims she was pushed to the ground by a man on Kealanani Avenue. She was able to escape but says the man had a knife.

It is unclear if the two men are the same suspect, but their descriptions are similar.

If you have any tips, call police.
