At 2:25 a.m. Tuesday (December 18), police arrested 22-year-old Kekoa Duguran of Kailua-Kona. At 6 p.m., Duguran was charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree assault and third-degree theft. He was held at the Kona police cellblock in lieu of $76,000 bail pending his initial court appearance scheduled for Wednesday (December 19).

A 26-year-old Kealakekua man reported that after he met a local man at a bar, the man took him to the northwest corner of the parking lot to meet with five or six males. They punched and kicked the victim and stole his backpack before fleeing on foot.

The victim was treated at Kona Community Hospital for a fractured jaw and minor cuts and scrapes.

Police continue to ask for help from anyone who witnessed the attack or saw the victim talking with a local male in the Coconut Grove area. The victim was wearing shorts and a striped tank top and was carrying a backpack.

Anyone with any information about this case is asked to call Detective Walter Ah Mow at 326-4646, extension 238.
