Police are asking for the public’s help in the investigation of two burglaries that have occurred in North Kohala.

On November 28 (Tuesday), 2000, an unknown male party entered a Hawi home during the early morning hours, physically accosted an adult female within the residence, and then fled the scene.

The suspect was described only as a male in his mid 20s to early 30s (possibly younger), being 5-feet-7 to 5-feet-8 in height, and weighing 160 to 190 pounds. He was wearing baggy jeans and a long-sleeved jacket.

In a separate incident, on November 11 (Saturday), an unknown male party entered a residence located in the Ainakea Subdivision of Kapa’au, North Kohala.
