A 31-year-old man was charged with second-degree assault in connection to a domestic violence incident that occurred in Laupāhoehoe.

Hawai‘i County Police were first made aware of the assault on Dec. 4 when Hāmākua patrol officers received a report of a female with numerous facial injuries at a business in the Laupāhoehoe area.

“Officers contacted the female victim who reported that she had been involved in a physical domestic dispute with a family member while within their vehicle,” police stated in a press release Wednesday.

The female was transported to the Hilo Medical Center where she was treated for multiple facial contusions, lacerations and a fracture.

On Dec. 5, Hāmākua patrol officers located and arrested Zodice Madeyski and was held by police while detectives continued the investigation.
