Hawaiʻi police looking for woman with dollar sign tattoo on cheek wanted for stabbing
Hawaiʻi Island police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating 28-year-old Shanice Ogata-Staudinger, who is wanted on an outstanding warrant in connection with a stabbing in Pāhoa.
Ogata-Staudinger is known to frequent the Puna District. She is 5 feet 2 inches and 150 pounds, with hazel eyes and brown hair. She has a dollar sign tattoo on her left upper check, and various other tattoos on both forearms and chest area.
She may be operating a red 2004 Toyota Sequoya.
The investigation stems from a domestic incident that occurred shortly after 10 a.m. on May 2 in Pāhoa.
Puna patrol officers responded to a residence on Ohiki Street after a 43-year-old man reported being stabbed with a hunting type knife by Ogata-Staudinger. The man was treated at the Hilo Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries and released on May 4.
Ogata-Staudinger is considered armed and dangerous. Police advise the public to not contact her and instead call the police department’s non-emergency number at 808-935-3311.
Anyone with information on Ogata-Staudinger’s whereabouts is encouraged to contact Detective Richard Itliong at (808) 961-2278, or via email at [email protected].
