HONOLULU -- A warrant has been issued for a man who was arrested for attacking a woman and her friend with a baseball bat at Ewa Beach in late May.

A $20,000 bench warrant was issued for Socrates Lagon after he failed to appear in court to face charges for the alleged assault at Ewa Beach, Honolulu Police officials said.

The incident occurred on May 27 around 2 a.m. According to police, the victim was sitting in a car with her friend at the beach when Lagon approached. The victim said Lagon shattered the driver’s side window with a baseball bat before hitting her with it at least one time.

The victim managed to escape and call the police. Responding officers found Lagon nearby and arrested him on complaints of second-degree assault and fourth-degree property damage. He was also later charged for possession of crystal meth.
