Media Release

Hawaiʻi Island police have located 26-year-old Michael Dwayne Carvalho, who was wanted on warrants and for questioning in an unrelated case.

Carvalho was arrested at noon Wednesday (October 2) in Puna and taken to the Hilo police cellblock while detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continued the investigation into a robbery, assault and terroristic threatening incident in June.

At 2:30 p.m. Thursday (October 3), Carvalho was charged with first-degree robbery, kidnapping, first-degree terroristic threatening, attempted unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle and two counts of second-degree assault . His bail was set at $140,000. He remained at the cellblock until his initial court appearance scheduled for Friday (October 4).

The charges stem from an incident the evening of June 9 at a home on Cook Street in Kalapana. On that date, Carvalho reportedly held a 29-year-old male acquaintance at knife point, assaulted him, threatened him, demanded his car keys and attempted to steal his vehicle.
