An armed robber fled with money from a Kapahulu-area business Saturday night, according to police records.

The suspect remains at large.

Also Saturday night, a 49-year-old homeless man attempted to rob a 71-year-old man in the Kakaako industrial area, according to police records. 

Police said the suspect in that case attempted to take the victim's property by force around 6:29 p.m. 

Police arrived and arrested the man, who has no local address, about 20 minutes later near Kakaako Makai Gateway Park on suspicion of second-degree robbery.
