A 19-year-old woman has been arrested for allegedly attacking her roommate and preventing her from leaving their Makiki home, according to Honolulu police.
Police said Kristen Costello and her brother assaulted a 26-year-old woman on Oct. 23, but Costello was arrested Monday.
The victim reportedly has a child with Costello’s brother, according to a police report.
Costello was originally booked on suspicion of strangulation, but that was downgraded to a misdemeanor. She also faces other charges, including kidnapping, terroristic threatening and abuse of a family member.
At last check, her brother has not been arrested.
Police have not released further details surrounding the incident, but updates will be posted if they become available.
