A Big Island man faces several charges following an alleged domestic incident involving his mother on Nov. 27.

Hawai‘i County Prosecuting Attorney Kelden Waltjen announced today, Tuesday, Nov. 30, that 36-year-old Nicholaus Rasmussen of Kāpa‘au was charged with two counts of felony abuse of a family or household member, second-degree assault, third-degree theft, second-degree terroristic threatening, and interference with reporting an emergency or crime.

According to court records, Rasmussen was on felony probation for first-degree criminal property damage and first-degree bail jumping at the time of the alleged domestic offenses.

Rasmussen made his initial court appearance Tuesday in Kona District Court.

Kona District Judge Kimberly Taniyama denied Rasmussen’s request for supervised release, set bail at $24,000 and ordered him to appear for a preliminary hearing on Dec. 1.
