Police today charged two people arrested Wednesday in Kailua-Kona following a road-rage incident.

David F. Torres, Jr., 31, was charged with unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle and criminal property damage. His bail was set at $11,000.

His wife, 30-year-old Shaundalinn Torres, was charged with third-degree assault and unauthorized entry of a vehicle. She was being held in lieu of $12,000 bail.

Police said the incident began when a blue sedan driven by David Torres cut off a maroon Jeep leaving the Kona Commons shopping center on Makala Boulevard and the driver of the Jeep honked her horn.

When both vehicles stopped at a red light, Torres and his wife allegedly got out of their vehicle and confronted the Jeep’s driver.


Police said during the confrontation, damage was done to the Jeep’s door, and Shaundalinn Torres allegedly sustained a small puncture wound to her forehead.


The driver of the Jeep, 42-year-old  Shannon Jenson, was also arrested on suspicion of assault Wednesday, but has been released from custody pending further investigation.

None of the three required medical treatment.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident to call Det. Walter Ah Mow at 326-4646, Ext. 238.
