Media Release

Hawaiʻi Island police arrested an 18-year-old Puna man Wednesday (July 10) in connection with a knife incident in Pāhoa.

Responding to a 5:12 p.m. call at a business establishment at 15-2875 Pāhoa Village Road in Pāhoa town, police located and arrested Cordell Studley of Pāhoa, who had allegedly threatened staff with several knives.

The victims reported that the suspect walked into their business and used a telephone without permission. When the staff members refused to allow him to use the phone a second time, he reportedly brandished two knives and threatened them.

No one was injured during this incident.

Studley was later charged with two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening and held at the Hilo police cellblock in lieu of $4,000 bail.
