Kona police are looking for a 48-year-old man who injured two women in an attack Wednesday morning (April 28, 1999).
The suspect was identified as Michael Moore, of Kona.
Moore fled the scene of the attack, in the Kahaluu housing complex, before police officers arrived.
Responding to a 5:30 a.m. call, officers found that two women, one 23 and the other 20, were struck with a hammer while in their apartment.
The victims were taken to the Kona Community Hospital, where the younger woman was reported in serious condition. The other woman suffered less serious injuries and was expected to be released Wednesday.
Anyone with information about Moore’s whereabouts is asked to call Kona Patrol at 326-4646.

Callers will be given a coded number and their identity will remain anonymous. Callers may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 if their call leads to an arrest, indictment or the recovery of property. Crime Stoppers neither subscribes to “Caller ID,” nor does it record phone calls.
