Hawai‘i Island police are investigating an assault that occurred on Sunday morning, May 14, in Mt. View.

Officers responded to the 18-4000 block of Heno Street in Mt. View at 10:29 a.m. after a report of an unconscious man with head injuries was lying in the middle of the roadway.

The 30 year-old victim had no permanent address and was taken to the Hilo Medical Center in critical condition and later flown to the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu.

He has since been upgraded to serious condition as detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continue with the investigation.

At 9:05 a.m. that same morning, the victim was seen in the Keaukaha area of Hilo in a dark-blue 2017 Toyota pickup truck that still had temporary plates.


Police ask anyone who may have seen the truck or have any information regarding this incident to contact Detective Todd Pataray of the Area I Criminal Investigation Section at (808) 961-2382 or [email protected]


Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call the island-wide Crime Stoppers number at 961-8300 and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.00.
