Police are asking for the public's help in finding a man suspected of robbing the Mililani branch of American Savings Bank yesterday.
The man entered the bank at 95-1249 Meheula Parkway at 12:02 p.m., approached the teller and demanded money. He fled on foot toward a Walmart store.
The suspect is described as in his 20s, 5 feet 5 inches tall, 160 to 180 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
He was wearing a black-and-white, long-sleeve plaid shirt, khaki shorts, a black-and-gray plaid baseball cap with an "NY" logo, and slippers.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME on a cell phone.
A 41-year-old man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly trying to steal another man's parrot in an Ewa Beach home in November but dropping the bird after it bit him, police said.
The man was arrested on suspicion of second-degree robbery at the Kapolei Police Station.
Police said a 68-year-old man confronted the man after he took the parrot from its perch in the morning hours of Nov. 17. The assailant tried to punch the older man and strike him with a leaf blower that he was holding, then dropped the parrot after it bit his hand, police said.
The assailant fled but was later identified and arrested.
