A 30-year-old professional surfer and model has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly following an elderly woman back to her apartment and running her down as part of a road rage incident.
Jill Hansen was formerly charged around 8pm on Friday in Hawaii following the attack in Waikiki, Honolulu, around noon on Wednesday, Hawaii News Now reported.
A witness, Chris Khory, has told police that he stopped Hansen from hitting the 73-year-old victim, identified as Elizabeth Conklin, a second time by smashing her back window with a crowbar.
Khory said after knocking Conklin down Hansen got out of her Volkswagen sedan, looked at her, got back in the car and reversed, according to Khon2.
Khory, who works at the apartment complex on Kalakaua Ave, said he quickly grabbed a crowbar and ran over and smashed Hansen’s back window.
Stunned, Hansen got and fled, leaving behind her car.
Police used it to track her down, arresting Hansen six hours later in the Manoa area.
Conklin was taken to hospital with cuts, bruises and a head injury.
She was hospitalized in serious condition, emergency officials said.
This is not Hansen’s first run-in with police.
She has a pending assault case and in a separate case was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.
There is also an active restraining order filed by her father.
According to the court documents, her father says she used Facebook to find someone to murder him and his family.
She has multiple rants on the social media site.
She claims to be a professional surfer and model and lashes out at critics.
Hansen has not yet been charged.
