By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:17 a.m. HST, Aug 03, 2013

Police arrested a 16-year-old boy for a pair of alleged robberies in Waipahu on Friday morning.

According to police, the boy entered a Waipahu financial institution about 9:25 a.m., displayed a dangerous weapon and demanded money. He fled the institution with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Just after 10 a.m., the boy allegedly entered a Waipahu retail establishment and again demanded money while displaying the dangerous instrument. He fled without taking anything.

Police located the suspect about a half hour later and arrested him on suspicion of two counts of first-degree robbery.

and they cant be "alleged robberies" he can have allegedly committed the crime, but they were either robberies or they were not. No one said 'boy, come take this money" boy, show us your gun.

This "boy" has to be locked up for a long time, and given psychological counseling to treat his dangerous behavior. It would be wrong for the State to let him into the community.

Poor kid, everyone is ready to abandon him, rather than trying to give him an opportunity to right himself. No second chance possibilties? He is only 16 and certainly worth giving him another try. If not what a waste and at taxpayers' expense and doom his future.

Yeah, that's what parents are for, not society. As a matter of fact, parents should be held responsible FOR the actions of their children.

Sixteen years old and his life is on such a rocky road. I would really like to know what kind of parents he has. Are they good people that are clueless or is he a chip off the old block?

Nothing will happen to this kid or his clueless "parents". Laws here are weak, judges even weaker.
