A 42-year-old suspect evaded police for about two hours Saturday night when he jumped into the water at Ala Wai Harbor after an officer shot him with a stun gun.
Officers responded to a call about a man trespassing on a boat about 6:20 p.m. When they arrived, they saw the man on the boat and told him to disembark. Instead of complying, the man brandished a knife and threatened to kill the officers, police said.
One of the officers used his stun gun on the man, police said.
The suspect then jumped into the water and tried to swim away. Officers arrested the man when he got out of the water at the harbor.
Police said he continued to resist capture by kicking an officer.
Officers arrested the man, who didn’t give a home address, at 8:11 p.m. He remained in custody at the main police cell block this morning for investigation five counts of first-degree terroristic threatening against the officers, assault on an officer, criminal trespassing, and resisting arrest.
