PUNA, Hawaii: The hunt for Brannon Ramirez has ended.
The 27-year-old Hawaiian Beaches man who police say goes by the name “Listo” and who was wanted in connection with a stabbing in Puna on Friday turned himself in at the Pāhoa police station at 5:42 p.m. Saturday. He was held at the Hilo police cellblock while detectives continued the investigation.
According to police:
The incident began with a domestic dispute at a convenience store on Kahakai Boulevard in Hawaiian Beaches between a 31-year-old Hawaiian Beaches woman and a 27-year-old Hawaiian Beaches man. During the argument, the man allegedly threw a beer bottle—which hit a 19-year-old man in a parked van—and then left the area.
A short time later, the mother of the man hit by the bottle and a relative—a 37-year-old Mountain View man—got into a confrontation with the couple from the original domestic argument on South Puni Mauka Loop near Aweoweo Street.
During the confrontation, the Mountain View man received lacerations to the chest, back, face and upper arms. He was taken to Hilo Medical Center, where he is listed in stable condition.
At 2:48 p.m. Monday, detectives charged Ramirez with first-degree assault, first-degree criminal property damage and two counts of third-degree assault. His bail was set at $11,000.
He is being held at the Hilo police cellblock pending his initial court appearance scheduled for Tuesday, May 15.
