A Filipino man is wanted on a US$30,000 reward for assaulting a woman in Honolulu, Hawaii.

According to CrimeStoppers Honolulu, Eddie Freeman III assaulted a woman on January 6 in the Kalihi area. Freeman allegedly approached the woman and started arguing with her.

After the argument, Freeman assaulted her and the woman suffered injuries. Police were then notified of the incident while Freeman fled the area. He is wanted on charges of assault in the second degree.

The woman said she had an active Protection Order against Freeman, who has six prior convictions and is known to frequent the Honolulu area. If convicted, Freeman faces a maximum of five years in prison.

In Hawaii, assault in the second degree is less serious than assault in the first degree, as the latter applies to the most severe injuries.

A person may be charged with second-degree assault if they have a major abrasion, laceration or penetration of the skin, a burn of at least second-degree severity, a bone fracture, serious concussion or tearing, rupture or damage to internal organs.
