Police: Suspect tried to run over officers near Punahou St.

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:47 a.m. HST, Mar 27, 2014

Two officers were injured when a 31-year-old car thief tried to run them down while trying to get away in a stolen car Tuesday afternoon, police said.

Officers were attempting to stop the Ewa Beach man, who was speeding on South King street in a stolen car, police said.  The suspect turned into a Tesoro gas station on Punahou Street, injured two officers and hit two vehicles, just after 4 p.m.

Police arrested the suspect at 4:14 p.m. Tuesday on suspicion of first-degree attempted murder, auto theft and resisting arrest.

Police blocked off Punahou Street and the gas station during the afternoon rush hour as they conducted an investigation at the scene.

Maybe this loser is related to the beating Sunday morning that killed the guy in Ewa Beach.

I saw the accident scene coming down South King Street. At the time, I remember thinking, “how could a car hit a van with that much force coming out of the Jack-in-the-Box parking lot?” The front end is totaled.

I guess police know something we don’t.

I remember seeing his mug shot on TV last night and his face was all purple and smashed up. I bet he'll think twice before trying to resist arrest in the future. :)
