A man robbed the Bank of Hawaii branch in Ewa Beach yesterday and escaped with an undetermined amount of money.
The robbery occurred at 91-775 Papipi Road at 10:45 a.m. The bandit, who did not use a gun in the robbery, was described as being 6 feet tall, weighing 185 pounds and wearing a red visor, blue shirt and blue trousers.
Minutes after the robbery, police were led on a chase in Ewa Beach by a 1980 Honda with a "homemade blue and gray" paint job. The suspect tried to evade police by crossing the medial strip several times and going the wrong way on Fort Weaver Road. He was caught in the parking lot of Hawaii Medical Center-West but was not the man who had robbed the bank.
Police arrested him on charges of reckless driving.
Police arrested a 26-year-old man for alleged negligent injury after the car he was driving struck a mo-ped in Moiliili Thursday night, sending the 54-year-old mo-ped driver to the Queen's Medical Center in critical condition with severe head injuries.

Police said the mo-ped was headed mauka on Isenberg when it collided in the intersection with a green 1993 Honda Civic that was making a left turn from Isenberg Street onto South King Street.
