Big Island Police Arrest Hilo Man After Brief Standoff

Big Island police have charged a 33-year-old Hilo man with a variety of offenses following his arrest Monday (November 19) in Hilo.

Around 6 p.m. Monday, police received a report of a trespasser on the property of a business on Wainaku Street in Hilo.

Samuel J. K. Delosantos

Responding officers made contact with Samuel J. K. Delosantos, who was still on the property. Delosantos repeatedly threatened the officers and charged at them while holding a shovel and a large knife.

After a brief standoff, Delosantos was arrested for terroristic threatening and on an outstanding bench warrant. Further investigation determined that Delosantos had made forced entry into a building and damaged numerous items on the property.

After conferring with prosecutors, police charged Delosantos at 5:54 p.m. Tuesday with second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal property damage and three counts of terroristic threatening. His bail was set at $10,000. He was held in the Hilo police cellblock pending his initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon (November 21).
