Cap­tain Cook man in­dicted on sex as­sault, kid­nap­ping charges

Hawaii Tribune Herald - - NEWS -

KAILUA-KONA — A Cap­tain Cook man in­dicted on sex­ual as­sault and kid­nap­ping charges last month turned him­self in Mon­day.

The in­dict­ment against Kel­son K.M. Akeo was filed April 10. He is charged with con­tin­u­ous sex­ual as­sault of a mi­nor younger than 14, three counts of kid­nap­ping, two counts of first-de­gree sex­ual as­sault and first-de­gree at­tempted sex­ual as­sault.

Charges stem from incidents that oc­curred last year. From April-July, the in­dict­ment states Akeo en­gaged in three or more acts of sex­ual pen­e­tra­tion or sex­ual contact with a boy younger than 14 years old. He also is ac­cused of kid­nap­ping.

From June 15-17, the in­dict­ment in­di­cates Akeo in­ten­tion­ally re­strained a boy younger than 14 and en­gaged in sex­ual pen­e­tra­tion.

Hawaii po­lice Maj. Robert Wag­ner said the al­leged as­saults oc­curred in South Ko­hala and Kona. The kid­nap­ping charges are a re­sult of the vic­tim not be­ing al­lowed to leave on three oc­ca­sions when the sex­ual as­saults oc­curred.

Akeo was booked into jail on bail of $100,000.
