Hawai`i Police Department detectives charged a 31-year-old suspect last week for a domestic violence incident that occurred in Laupāhoehoe.
At approximately 7:50 p.m. on Wednesday, Hāmākua patrol officers received a report of a female with numerous facial injuries at a business in the Laupāhoehoe area.
Officers contacted the female victim who reported that she had been involved in a physical domestic dispute with a family member while within their vehicle. The female was transported to the Hilo Medical Center where she was treated for multiple facial contusions, lacerations, and a fracture.
On December 5, Hāmākua patrol officers located and arrested Madeyski and he was held in the police cellblock while detectives continued the investigation before conferring with prosecutors on charges.
Last Friday Zodice Madeyski was charged for second-degree assault and abuse of a family/household member. His bail was set at $14,000 and he made his initial court appearance on Monday, Dec. 9.
