By Star-Advertiser staff


A witness helped put a 26-year-old Nuuanu woman behind bars after the suspect allegedly stole cash from a 75-year-old man who was sitting at a bus stop in Chinatown Thursday night.

Police said the 26-year-old suspect allegedly took the cash from the pocket of a 75-year-old man at 5:50 p.m. and fled. However, police said a withness intervened and officers apprehended the suspect 30 minutes later on Fort Street Mall near a department store.

Police arrested the suspect on suspicion of second-degree theft.

The proposed rail station probably will be the same, just like in NYC subways, where pick pocket dudes and derelicts look for the next prey.

And how is that different from getting mugged in parking lot going to your car or having your vehicle vandalized while parked at the mall or beach?
