Charges for three Haiku men in attack on man, 29, in his home

Three Haiku men were charged in an assault on two brothers early Friday at a Haiku residence, police said.

Gaius Awong, 23; Logan Isaac Brown Silverstein, 24; and Steven Sarol, 27, were each charged with second-degree assault in the incident reported at 12:19 a.m. on Waikina Loop.

Brown Silverstein also was charged with first-degree burglary and first-degree terroristic threatening. He and Awong were arrested at the scene after patrol officers located them in the area.

Police said the suspects entered a residence on Waikina Loop and used a square pipe to attack a 29-year-old man, who was knocked to the ground. Trying to help the victim, his 27-year-old brother used bear spray on the suspects, who continued beating the 29-year-old, police said. The 27-year-old brother then grabbed an arrow and stabbed Sarol in the back before he, Awong and Brown Silverstein fled.

The 29-year-old was treated with stitches for a cut to his face, police said, and also may have suffered a fracture to his arm.

Sarol was arrested after being treated with stitches for the wound to his back.

Sarol and Brown Silverstein were released after posting bail, which was set at $1,000 for Sarol and $4,000 for Brown Silverstein.

Awong remained in police custody Monday morning, with his bail set at $1,000 on the assault charge and $3,500 for four contempt-of-court warrants.
