Police Seeking Andrade in Domestic Violence Case
Police are looking for a former Pahoa man in connection with a domestic violence incident.
Police said Ronsten Keone Andrade III is a local male, 6-foot tall and about 180 pounds. He has short black hair and brown eyes.
Andrade, who also goes by the name Ronsten Andrade Tripp, was last seen in a makeshift home Monday afternoon in the Puna subdivision of Tiki Gardens. He was wearing a green-gray long-sleeved flannel jacket and a cap. He may be driving a late-model white four-door Saturn sedan with a burnt finish on the driver’s side door.
He is wanted in connection with an incident that occurred in the Hawaiian Beaches subdivision. Police said he allegedly assaulted a 19-year-old Puna woman, forcibly took items from her and prevented her from leaving. The victim sustained non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
Police have initiated several investigations including abuse of a family or household member, robbery, terroristic threatening and kidnapping.
The public is cautioned not to confront Andrade but to contact Det. Grant Todd at 961-2385 or by email at [email protected], or the police department’s non-emergency number at 935-3311.
