Hawaii island police are seeking information about a reported robbery at a Puna park in July, during which a victim was threatened with a machete. 

A 51-year-old man and a 37-year-old woman were reportedly approached by three unidentified men at 2 a.m. on July 28 at the pavilion of Ahalanui Park, also called "Hot Pond." 

After demanding the victims' wallets, one of the suspects got into a physical altercation with the male victim. Another suspect then reportedly threatened the victim with a machete. The suspects fled with cash and the victim's cell phone. 

Police ask anyone with information about this case to contact Detective Wendall Carter at 808-961-2871 or wcarter@co.hawaii.hi.us

Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 808-961-8300 in Hilo or 808-329-8181 in Kona and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Crime Stoppers is a volunteer program run by ordinary citizens who want to keep their community safe. Crime Stoppers doesn't record calls or subscribe to caller ID.

What is up with the Big Island. Way too much going on over there. Wow, I'm beginning to sound like Allie. Let me rephrase my comment: The island of Hawai'i seems to be increasing the number of problems and incidents. We have stabbings, thefts, multiple car accidents, moped accidents.... gettin' kinda crazy. But, at least nobody is dousing themselves with gasoline and setting them on fire!
