Jack in the Box Sex Assault Suspect Appears in Court

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- A fast food restaurant worker in Kailua, accused of raping a young woman, makes his first court appearance in the case Tuesday.

Twenty-three-year-old Elia Hauanio is charged with four counts of sex assault. His bail is set at $50,000.

Investigators say Hauanio invited an intoxicated 19-year-old woman inside the Jack in the Box restaurant on Oneawa Street early Friday morning, and sexually assaulted her. Only the restaurant's drive through was open at the time.

A preliminary hearing is set for Thursday.
