Makiki woman chases teen burglary suspect out of house

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:48 a.m. HST, Jul 24, 2012

A 25-year-old woman awoke early Monday morning to find a 14-year-old boy in her Makiki bedroom peeking under a blanket, police said.

The woman chased the suspect out of her house and called police at 5:30 a.m.

The suspect ran across Poki Street and hid in bushes in a parking lot, police said.

The woman ran after the suspect and found some of her property.

About an hour later, police apprehended the teenager on Wilder Avenue and Artesian Street and arrested him on suspicion of first-degree burglary.

Kids nowadays. 12-year old set fires in Pearl City, this kid breaks into woman's home. No respect for other people and their property. Send them to juvenile detention and let them think about what they did and get a taste of incarceration. Slapping them on the wrist won't cut it. Future criminals.

I hear you. But the vast majority of people incarcerated at Halawa and O'ahu CCC DID do time at Ko'olau. There will always be that segment of the population that is incorrigible and that repeated incarcerations will not dissuade from their criminal ways.

Goodness! The teen must have been excited if he was "peaking" under the blanket! I think the writer meant "peeking" :)

A "peeping-tom" in the neighborhood. I was going to say, the making, of a peeping tom, but this kid is inside the house, peeping, a danger signal that we have a potential rapist. Again I have to repeat that behavior is learned at home and parental influences are the key to their up-bring. Lack of discipline are earmarks of problems in the home. A healthy environment breed healthy children. With the emergence of the "me" generation, discpline is lacking. Another issue is the "instant gratification" syndrome practiced by today's families. The need to obtain the latest gadgets without regards of cost consequences depict todays parents. Yep!, I'm from the "ole", makule school where you "have to have" the money first, before making any purchases.. No charge accounts.

Burglars should be punished more severely. It seems like burglars who are caught get only a a year or so. These scum violate us like other criminals or even more. The trauma they cause and the loss of the sense of security is incredible. They also take from the victim the property that may have sentimental value to them. And that does not include the financial loss that is so obvious. They should be on the registry as they are the criminals that show repeat offense. Yes, many are drug driven but putting them back on the streets only results in more victims.

Well I see the editors finally substituted the word "peeking" for the original occurrence of "peaking" in the story! I'm sure they acted quickly to dispel any "rising concerns" regarding the 14 yr. old voyeur.
