Kalihi man shot by police officer charged with assault

Ralph Riveira Jr

A Kalihi man who was shot by police earlier this year has been charged with assault.

In March, police responded to an argument on Machado Street.

When officers arrived police say 36-year-old Ralph Riveira Junior went after one of them with a foot-long metal stake.

That’s when an officer fired his gun at Riveira.

He suffered critical injuries.

Riveira’s bail for the assault charge is set at $250,000.
