An Oahu grand jury returned an indictment against a 21-year-old man today, charging him with allegedly throwing acid on his ex-girlfriend in Mililani, resulting in severe chemical burns to her face and body.

The grand jury indicted Paul M. Cameron with second-degree attempted murder and two firearm offenses. He is being held at the Oahu Community Correctional Center in lieu of $2 million bail.

Second-degree attempted murder carries a penalty of life in prison with the possibility of parole.

The alleged attack occurred on the night of April 7 in the parking lot of 24 Hour Fitness at Kipapa Drive in Mililani.

Honolulu police responded to a call of an aggravated assault at about 9:30 p.m.

Witnesses told police a woman ran into the gym screaming for help and that her skin was burning. Honolulu police in court documents said the victim sustained “severe chemical burns to her face, shoulders, back and lower extremities.”

The victim, 20, told police investigators an unknown masked male approached her and pointed a gun at her. She saw a flash but did not hear a gunshot.

The suspect then allegedly threw an unknown liquid on her before running off.

Detectives of the Honolulu Police Department’s Strategic Enforcement Detail and Homicide Detail conducted an investigation where they interviewed more than a dozen people, reviewed surveillance video and examined evidence.

During the investigation, detectives interviewed Cameron who told police he was hiking near Hanauma Bay with a friend at the time of the attack.

Police also interviewed the friend who said she did not hike with him that night.

Police identified Cameron as a suspect in the case and arrested him Friday near his home in Pearl City.
