Poll – Should Man that “Detained” Cell Phone Pervert Face Legal Charges?

Well I think we have all heard about the recent incident involving the cell phone pervert, Faavae Tuinei, who was using his phone to record girls in public bathrooms.

Well now it looks like the police are looking to possibly charge the man that “detained” the pervert after “uncle” found out what the perv was doing to his 13-year-old niece.

The Hawaii Tribune reports:

…The girl, who appeared uncomfortable recalling the incident, said she also saw the phone being held by a man underneath the stall’s partition.

Her cousin told the court her boyfriend chased Tuinei from the restroom.

The cousin’s boyfriend, Laimana Mauga, initially identified by police as the girl’s uncle, then allegedly assaulted Tuinei.

Mauga, who police say physically restrained Tuinei with the help of two others, did not testify Thursday because of the possibility of an assault charge being filed against him. Judge Barbara Takase committed Tuinei’s case to 3rd Circuit Court…

So I know what I would do if I were the girl’s “uncle” and I’m sure many of us would do the same thing… I won’t say it publicly… but I think we all know what I’m thinking!

Hilo Man Arrested After Using Cell Phone to Record Females in Public Bathrooms

Big island police charged a Hilo man Monday (April 2) in connection with two incidents from Saturday night (March 31).

Faavae E. Tuinei

Thirty-five-year-old Faavae E. Tuinei was arrested after South Hilo patrol officers took two separate reports of a man using a cellular phone to record females in public bathrooms.

Tuinei reportedly went into a women’s public bathroom in Hilo and used a cellular phone in a bathroom stall to record a 24-year-old woman using the bathroom in the next stall. When witnesses confronted him, he left the area on foot.

Less than an hour later, Tuinei was allegedly observed using a cellular phone in an adjacent stall to record a 13-year-old girl using a public bathroom in the Panaʻewa area. A relative of the victim detained him until police arrived.

Tuinei was arrested and held at the Hilo police cellblock while detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continued the investigation. On Monday night, they charged him with two counts of first-degree violation of privacy. He remained in the cellblock in lieu of $20,000 bail until his initial court appearance in South Hilo District Court on Tuesday afternoon (April 3).
