Police are asking for the public’s help to find a man who robbed a Bank of Hawaii in Kunia today and may have robbed a bank in Kalihi in May. 

The man, who is in his 40s, entered the bank today at 9:57 a.m. at 94-661 Kupuohi St., wearing a black baseball cap and a grey curly wig. 

He approached a teller, brandished a handgun, demanded money, and then fled in an unknown direction, police said. 

The man is a possible suspect in the American Savings Bank robbery at 1851 N. King St. on May 26, according to CrimeStoppers. The man entered the bank about 9:50 a.m., displayed a handgun, and demanded money, before running away.

He is 5 feet 4 to 6 inches tall, between 180 and 200 pounds, and has a mustache. In today’s robbery, he wore a grey curly wig, a dark colored shirt, blue denim pants, black shoes with white soles, a baseball cap with the letters "OLD," sunglasses, and on the left wrist, a large faced watch with a black band. 

Anyone with information about the robber is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME from a cell phone. Anonymous text messages can also be sent by texting "CS808" and the message to 274637 or CRIMES.
