A local surfer was charged for attempted murder.

Honolulu police officers arrested Jill Anjuli Hansen, 30, Wednesday night after she allegedly drove a car into an elderly woman in Waikiki.

Authorities say the incident occurred at 11:40 a.m. Wednesday in the underground parking garage of Diamond Head Apartments on Kalakaua Ave.

The woman, who is in her 70s, was hospitalized in serious condition with cuts, bruises and a head injury.

A maintenance worker, who witnessed the confrontation, said Hansen was about to hit the woman yet again when he grabbed a crowbar and smashed the back of the windshield, authorities said. That’s when Hansen jumped out and ran away, the witness said.

Hansen is in police custody in lieu of $1 million bail.
