By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 1:15 p.m. HST, May 9, 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.
