Kona police have arrested a third suspect in connection with last month’s robbery and attack in Kailua-Kona that left a Kealakekua man with a broken jaw.

Police on Wednesday charged 21-year-old Kainoa Bryan of Kealakekua with robbery, assault and theft in relation to the incident in the Ali`i Sunset Plaza parking lot. Bryan was also charged with promotion of a dangerous drug and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bail for Bryan was set at $80,000.

The charges stem from an attack on a 26-year-old Kealakekua man who had met a local man in a bar and then accompanied to a corner of the rear parking lot to meet with five or six males who punched and kicked him and stole his backpack before fleeing on foot.

Police had previous charged Alexander Miller, 21, of Kailua-Kona, and Alexander Cho, 20, who has no permanent address, in connection with the Nov. 26 incident.
