HONOLULU (AP) - Three sailors are scheduled for arraignment Monday for their roles in the attack of a Tennessee dental student in Waikiki.
Skylar Dudley and Derrick Martin, both 19, were charged with second-degree assault and are being held on $35,000 bail each at Oahu Community Correctional Center, said Jim Fulton, spokesman for the prosecutor's office.
Edward Robinson, 27, was released after posting $35,000 bail, Fulton said. All three are assigned to a Naval air squadron at the Kaneohe Marine Corps Base in Windward Oahu.
Jose L. Montoya, a student at the University of Tennessee dental school, was walking in Waikiki in the early morning hours of March 13 when he was attacked by the suspects, according to a police report.
Montoya, who was in Honolulu for a dental conference, was knocked unconscious and his head hit the pavement, the police report said. The attack continued after he was down and unconscious.
