Big Island police have charged a 20-year-old Kailua-Kona man in connection with what started as a report of a man with a knife threatening people at a residence in Kailua-Kona.

The evening of Sunday, Sept. 15, Kona Patrol officers arrested the suspect identified as Garrick Scott Simmons. During the arrest, Simmons threatened and assaulted two officers.  One officer suffered a concussion and sprained knee while a second officer sustained a sprained knee and abrasions. Both officers were later treated and released from the Kona Community Hospital.

Detectives have determined that Simmons entered the home of an acquaintance, a 21-year-old Kailua-Kona man, and threatened him with a knife. Simmons later illegally entered the man’s vehicle, removed some items, and fled the area.

Charges brought against Simmons include two counts of first-degree assaulting a police officer, two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening, and kidnapping.

Simmons was released from custody after posting $20,500 dollars bail.
