HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Less than 24 hours after a request for public assistance, Honolulu police officers arrested Andrew Patyjewicz Saturday morning at Ala Moana Beach Park.

Patyjewicz was arrested on a grand jury bench warrant issued upon his indictment for criminal charges related to the possession and distribution of child pornography. 

“Shortly after asking for the public’s assistance in apprehending Patyjewicz the calls started pouring in to our department. I want to thank the public for their assistance, which was critical in making this arrest,” said Attorney General Doug Chin.

The investigation was handled by the Hawaii Internet Crimes Against Children unit in the Attorney General’s office.
