Yesterday (March 12, 2013) at 4:40 pm, upon conferring with prosecutors, detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigation Section charged Patrick John Lindsey for first degree burglary, attempted first degree robbery, two counts of first degree terroristic threatening, and attempted first degree unauthorized entry motor vehicle. Bail for Lindsey was set at $105,000.00 and he remains in custody in the police cellblock pending his initial court appearance this afternoon.

On June 24. 2012 at about 3 a.m., police responded to a burglary report at a home in upper Kukuau Street. A 55-year-old Hilo man who was parking in his carport was reportedly accosted by a lone male who brandished a firearm and threatened him. When the victim’s 54-year-old wife entered the carport after hearing the commotion, she was also threatened with the firearm.

The suspect fled the area on foot toward Kukuau Street. He was described as possibly a young local male with a slim build and a fair complexion. He also was wearing dark clothing and what appeared to be a mask to conceal his identity.

Neither victim sustained any injuries during this incident.
