Carvalho was arrested at noon Wednesday (October 2) in Puna and taken to the Hilo police cellblock while detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continued the investigation into a robbery, assault and terroristic threatening incident in June.

At 2:30 p.m. Thursday (October 3), Carvalho was charged with first-degree robbery, kidnapping, first-degree terroristic threatening, attempted unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle and two counts of second-degree assault . His bail was set at $140,000. He remained at the cellblock until his initial court appearance scheduled for Friday (October 4).

The charges stem from an incident the evening of June 9 at a home on Cook Street in Kalapana. On that date, Carvalho reportedly held a 29-year-old male acquaintance at knife point, assaulted him, threatened him, demanded his car keys and attempted to steal his vehicle.
