Big island police charged a Hilo man Monday (April 2) in connection with two incidents from Saturday night (March 31).

Thirty-five-year-old Faavae E. Tuinei was arrested after South Hilo patrol officers took two separate reports of a man using a cellular phone to record females in public bathrooms.

Tuinei reportedly went into a women’s public bathroom in Hilo and used a cellular phone in a bathroom stall to record a 24-year-old woman using the bathroom in the next stall. When witnesses confronted him, he left the area on foot.

Less than an hour later, Tuinei was allegedly observed using a cellular phone in an adjacent stall to record a 13-year-old girl using a public bathroom in the Panaʻewa area. A relative of the victim detained him until police arrived.

Tuinei was arrested and held at the Hilo police cellblock while detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continued the investigation. On Monday night, they charged him with two counts of first-degree violation of privacy. He remained in the cellblock in lieu of $20,000 bail until his initial court appearance in South Hilo District Court on Tuesday afternoon (April 3).

    “A relative of the victim detained him.” The photo in the article might suggest “A relative of the victim detained and __________ed him.”
