Two Kailua-Kona residents have been charged with public lewdness for allegedly having sex on a public sidewalk.

The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reported that Dylan Trask Whelden, 35, and Margaret Manza, 33, were arrested Monday for the encounter in front of a Kaiwi Street business in the old Kona industrial area shortly after 4 p.m.

Bail for Whelden was set at $250. Manza, who allegedly spit and cursed at one of the arresting officers, was also charged with disorderly conduct and harassment, the Tribune-Herald said.

Manza was also charged with theft, contempt of court and failure to appear in connection with the alleged taking of a $2 blouse from the Salvation Army Ohana Thrift Store, the newspaper reported. She was initially being held in lieu of $1,600 bail.
