Police are looking for a man who allegedly burglarized a Niu Valley home Saturday morning, then hijacked a car from a woman to make his getaway.
The incident started around 11:10 a.m. when the suspect allegedly removed an item from a residence along Kalanianaole Highway east of Niu Valley and was confronted by one of the occupants of the home. After a brief struggle, the suspect fled across the street, where he allegedly confronted a woman getting out of a vehicle, threw the woman to the ground and stole the vehicle.
Police recovered the vehicle nearby but were unable to locate the suspect.
