Robbery suspect caught after search

The manhunt for a robbery suspect that led police to close Kalanianaole Highway near Castle Junction and lock down students in classrooms Tuesday ended that night.

Police arrested a 25-year-old Liliha man at 11:45 p.m. Tuesday near the Kamehameha Highway and H-3 Freeway intersection.

The suspect allegedly fled from a car near Castle Junction that police think was involved in an armed robbery in Hawaii Kai, police said.

The search for a potential gunman prompted a massive search by police Tuesday morning.

During the search, people at HPU's Hawaii Loa campus, Le Jardin Academy, the mauka campus of Trinity Christian School and a day care center at Castle Medical Center were not allowed outside of classrooms and designated areas.

The incident began at about 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Police said two men, one of them brandishing a .38-caliber revolver, robbed a Reynolds Recycling truck at Kealahou Street in Hawaii Kai. They got away in a 2009 black Mazda sedan and were pursued by police through the Sandy Beach area before abandoning their car on Auloa Road near Castle Junction.

At 11:20 a.m. Tuesday, police arrested four other suspects on suspicion of robbery: a 32-year-old Hawaii Kai man, a 27-year-old man with no local address, a Makiki man and a 20-year-old Papakolea woman. The woman was also arrested for alleged drug possession.
