Kauai police need help capturing a fugitive from Kapaa who is considered dangerous, according to authorities.

Police said 43-year-old Ray Kuna Harada is wanted on two bench warrants with a total bail of $200,000.

Officers initially located Harada on Tuesday morning along a steep hillside at the end of North Waiakula Road, near a dirt trail that leads to Pilaa Beach. However, Harada violently resisted the arrest and bit an officer before fleeing on foot into steep terrain with thick vegetation, KPD said.

The incident resulted in two officers being injured. They were treated and released from Wilcox Hospital later that day.

Police ask that anyone with information call dispatch at (808) 241-1711 or CrimeStoppers at (808) 246-8300.
