An Oahu grand jury on Wednesday indicted an 18-year-old man in a Kalihi supermarket carjacking in which an elderly man was forced from his vehicle.
Shayddon Lizardo-Calarruda is charged with kidnapping, second-degree robbery and resisting arrest. His bail is set at $50,000.
Lizardo-Calarruda on Sept. 5 allegedly used an unidentified object to threaten a 76-year-old man who was in the passenger seat of a vehicle in the parking lot of Marukai Wholesale Mart, 2310 Kamehameha Highway.
A man later identified as Lizardo-Calarruda opened the driver’s side door of the vehicle and turned on the ignition switch, according to a court document. Police said he drove toward the exit of the parking lot while the victim was still inside.
When the victim pleaded with him to let him out, police said Lizardo-Calarruda used physical force to get him out of the vehicle before he drove off.
Police issued a bulletin and released surveillance images seeking the public’s help in the case, and anonymous tips led police to a homeless camp near the Waipahu Plantation Village on Sept. 8, where they found Lizardo-Calarruda.
The court document said Lizardo-Calarruda attempted to flee and “became combative,” but was arrested after a brief struggle.
