Woman arrested in assault
A Kahului woman was arrested Monday afternoon when police officers responded to a report that she was breaking glass and causing other damage to her rental unit at Luana Gardens, police said.
When officers arrived, they saw Crystal Lopes, 23, leaving the unit carrying two pots, one in each hand, and hitting a neighbor who was standing outside, said Lt. Jayson Rego of the Criminal Investigation Division.
The neighbor was hit in the head and complained of pain, he said.
Lopes, who had cuts on her legs and hands, was charged with first-degree criminal property damage and second-degree assault in the incident at 1:58 p.m.
Her bail was set at $6,000.
