By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:31 a.m. HST, Aug 13, 2013

A thief tried to make off with a bag left on Waikiki Beach, but bystanders chased the 23-year-old suspect, police said.

The victim, a 31-year-old man, left his bag on the beach and went for a swim. When the suspect allegedly grabbed the bag and ran, other people on the beach gave chase, police said.

Officers arrested the suspect after investigating the Friday incident, police said Monday.

kailua, we used to bury our stuff @ the beach, then go surfing. Come back hours later, stuff still there. It's all about triangulation.

Maybe they should have somebody there that they can pay to watch their stuff. If there's a demand, then there must be a supply.
