Alert security guards at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center prevented the theft of a woman’s handbag Monday afternoon, police said.
The security personnel witnessed two men taking a handbag belonging to a woman who had gone swimming at a beach near the shopping center. They detained both suspects and called police.
The handbag was recovered and the suspects — an 18-year-old man and a 21-year-old man, neither of whom has a local address — were arrested on suspicion of second-degree theft.
