Homeless man arrested in theft

Police arrested a 23-year-old homeless man who allegedly broke into his father's Nuuanu house even though a temporary restraining order barred him from the residence.

Police arrested him at the 1700 block of Nuuanu Avenue on suspicion of first-degree burglary and violating a restraining order.

Threat leads to man's arrest
