Police catch ‘Peeping Tom’ in South Kohala


A four-month investigation into reports of a “Peeping Tom” in South Kohala has led to the arrest of a teenager.

From June through October, South Kohala police received reports of a male teenager or young adult repeatedly peering into windows in the Waikoloa Village area.

Investigation by Community Policing officers led to the identity of a 15-year-old boy, who was arrested Wednesday morning (October 29) on suspicion of fourth-degree sexual assault, which applies to “Peeping Tom” type activities.

After conferring with the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney, the boy was released to the custody of his parents pending further investigation. South Kohala officers are continuing to investigate additional incidents.
