Police investigate sexual assault

A woman was reportedly raped Thursday afternoon at Polihale State Beach Park. Responding personnel took urine samples from the victim, a 39-year-old woman.

Reports are unsubstantiated; neither medical response personnel nor police officers were able to comment on the incident or pending criminal investigation.

American Medical Response personnel from Waimea responded to the scene. Of the two fire department response vehicles stationed in Waimea, the Hummer was being repaired, and the engine can’t traverse the road, a fire department official said.
