HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A grand jury has indicted a man for first-degree attempted sex assault after he allegedly attacked two women in Kakaako.
Honolulu police said 28-year-old Jesse Nielsen allegedly attacked an elderly woman Monday night and gagged her with a scarf to muffle her screams.
Earlier in the night, investigators said Nielsen forced another woman’s head in a toilet when she refused his sexual advances.
Nielsen is also charged with second-degree assault and promoting a dangerous drug.
He remains behind bars on just over $200,000 bail.
