A Hawaii island woman was in the hospital Saturday evening after she was allegedly kidnapped from a home in Puna.
One suspect turned himself in to police Saturday and was released pending investigation. Police were seeking three others in the case.
The suspects took the victim, Rochelle “Shelly” Guyer, 31, at gunpoint from her cousin’s home in Hawaiian Beaches, where she had been staying, around 10 a.m., according to Guyer’s mother, Agnes Nathaniel.
In a message posted to her Facebook feed, Nathaniel identified two of the suspects as Nicole Nasario and Josh Sosa and said the pair, “put a gun to my daughter’s head hit (her) with a crowbar and put her in the back of the trunk and kidnapped her.”
Nathaniel said that she was not with her daughter at the time of the incident and is not sure if or how Guyer knows Nasario and Sosa.
Nathaniel told the Star-Advertiser that at some point her daughter was taken to the home of Nasario’s mother, Vicki Nasario, who dropped Guyer off at the Hawaiian Beaches residence around 7 p.m.
Nathaniel said her daughter was taken to Hilo Medical Center with injuries suffered from the initial assault. She said her daughter’s hair also was cut off.
Police confirmed Saturday afternoon that they were searching for Sosa, 25, and Nasario, 26, as well as 32-year-old Claude Carvalho and 34-year-old Paul Alisa.
Alisa turned himself in on Saturday evening.
The remaining suspects were still at large as of 9 p.m. Saturday and were considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked to call 911.
The suspects were traveling in a maroon 1998 Toyota Corolla with a broken or missing rear window and the license plate number HCD702 when Guyer was taken.
