HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Police have arrested a man who they say followed a woman off a city bus and sexually assaulted her.

The case happened Aug. 2, and police put out a plea for his arrest on Monday. 

The suspect, Pn Meikei, was arrested Tuesday about noon in Kalihi.

The 30-year-old was charged with two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault. 

Police said the incident happened when the victim was on a bus in the Windward Oahu area. The suspect started to talk to her, and she got off at Windward Mall after feeling uncomfortable. The suspect then followed her off the bus and sexually assaulted her.

Police said the victim fled into a store and notified an employee, who contacted security. 

But things didn't stop there.

Police said the victim later went back to the bus stop and boarded a city bus with a friend. The suspect followed her and started to talk to her, and the victim told him she was going to report the incident to police. She did just that after getting off at the Castle Medical Center.

Meikei's bail is set at $2,500. He is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning.
