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
