Police charge suspect in violent attack on woman pushing stroller
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The suspect accused of intentionally running over a woman pushing her baby in a stroller in the Mililani Walmart parking lot has been charged, Honolulu police said.
Desmond Kekahuna was charged Friday with attempted murder and second-degree assault.
His bail was set at $1 million.
The incident happened on Wednesday morning.
According to officials, a 37-year-old woman was pushing her 6-month-old child in the parking lot when she was hit by the vehicle and dragged about 15 feet, leaving her in critical condition.
Police said Kekahuna then got out of his car and began to beat her with what witnesses described as a crowbar or tire iron.
Witnesses said Kekahuna then attacked a good Samaritan who rushed to help the woman.
That person, a 40-year-old man, was seriously injured.
The baby was not hurt, officials said.
Police said they believe the incident was a random act and the suspect did not know the victims.
