Man charged in Ala Moana Center kidnapping attempt

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:15 p.m. HST, May 09, 2012

An 18-year-old Moiliili man was charged Tuesday for allegedly trying to kidnap and rob a woman by placing a bag over her head in the parking lot of the Ala Moana Center Monday morning.

Bail is set at $100,000 for Christopher K. Estoy, who is charged with attempted kidnapping and robbery. He is scheduled to make his initial District Court appearance this morning.

A 29-year-old woman told police the suspect followed her to her parked car at 7:30 a.m.  When she confronted the suspect, he denied following her, then the suspect placed a bag over her head.

The woman said she dropped to her knees and fought off her attacker.

The suspect fled, but the victim said she was able to get a good look at him.

A patrol officer stopped Estoy an hour later for jaywalking on Keeaumoku Street and arrested him as a suspect in the attempted kidnapping incident.

Estoy was convicted of burglary in March and was sentenced to five years of probation.

All well and good however how will our Prosecutong office and Judge view this? Especially since our Governor wants to bring back more convicts back to Hawaii and free up space in the prisons, what will happen to this law breaker? A slap on the wrist?

OK....the judge gave him 5 years probation on the last one, and that didn't stop him from committing another crime so a JAIL SENTENCE is warranted, logic would dictate - Take the guy off the street. Next time it will probably be a morte violent crime this guy will committ.

Hope this time his probation is revoked and he serves the time for the burglary and these new crimes. Why was he even given probation the first time anyway? Hawaii judges need to get a grip and make these criminals serve time in jail, even for a first offense.
