Maui police are seeking the public’s help in identifying individuals involved in a disorderly situation in and around the vicinity of the Kīhei Kalama Village, also known as “The Triangle” in which an estimated 100 people were involved.
According to police reports, an investigation finds that the incident started between two large rival groups of individuals from the Happy Valley and Kīhei areas of Maui.
Police say the incident was reported sometime after midnight on Sunday, July 12, 2015.
According to police reports, numerous calls were received, reporting a disorderly incident involving a large group of individuals at the location.
Police say security personnel on site also reported a 34-year-old man was lying on the ground unconscious near the Haui’s Life’s A Beach location. Other physical fights were continuing in the middle of the roadway outside of the bar, according to Maui Police.
Upon arrival on scene, police say officers found a large group of individuals yelling and taunting one another from both sides of Keala Street between Foodland and the “Triangle.”
While attempting to disburse the crowd and stop the fights, police say officers with the Maui Police Department were allegedly assaulted by individuals, that as yet have not been identified. Police say one of the male suspects allegedly ran off towards the Sansei Restaurant and jumped into a gray Toyota Tacoma, four door, pick-up truck, with dark tinted windows.
