Video shows suspect in kidnapping of Maui tourists

Maui police were seeking the public’s help in identifying two suspects in a robbery and kidnapping at gunpoint of two tourists last week.

Police said the visitors were approached at Nakalele Point at about 6:50 p.m. Wednesday by an unknown man and woman wearing masks. The man brandished firearms and robbed the couple.

The suspects then took the couple to several locations where they ordered them to purchase items.

The female suspect entered one location, police said.

Police released surveillance video today showing the female suspect, who has a tattoo of unknown lettering on her front right thigh and long black hair.

Police described the woman as in her 20s, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, 120 to 130 pounds, with long hair and brown eyes. The man was described as in his 30s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, about 180 pounds, with short black hair.

Police warned the public not to approach or follow the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call Maui police at 244-6400.
