Two arrested in assault
Two 20-year-old Kahului women were arrested for robbing another woman, who was hit and had her bags stolen after an early-morning argument Monday at a Harbor Lights Condominium unit, police said.
The victim had been staying in the unit with Tiare Nakihei before she was asked to leave after an argument, police said. The victim gathered her belongings and left, only to be confronted outside the unit by Nakihei and Desiree Hosino, police said.
Nakihei began slapping the victim, and Hosino joined in, police said. The victim was punched and had her bags taken before the other women went back into the unit, police said.
The victim refused medical treatment.
Nakihei was arrested at 2:40 p.m. Monday. She was charged with second-degree robbery and abuse, with her bail set at $6,000.
Hosino was arrested at 7:50 a.m. Tuesday. She was also charged with second-degree robbery and abuse.
