Two Victoria police officers helped intervene and stop an alleged sexual assault while on vacation in Hawaii.

“Always on duty,” tweeted Victoria Police Chief Del Manak after news spread that two local officers assisted in preventing a sexual assault while on vacation in Hawaii.

One of the officers involved, Brent Keddell, is said to have been out for a morning jog in Kona when he heard screams and wanted to offer assistance until Hawaii authorities arrived on scene, according to a Hawaii news outlet.

Manak’s tweet suggests that Keddell, along with a second vacationing Victoria officer who was with him, intervened in order to prevent a sexual assault.

“Very proud of these officers,” Manak’s tweet said.

According to the same Hawaiian news outlet, the man was charged and appeared in court for a preliminary hearing of the alleged incident earlier this week.

More information from Keddell and the Victoria Police Department will be released later on today.
