A 26-year-old Kailua man is in custody facing several charges because of the actions of a private citizen who prevented the suspect from leaving a crime scene at a Kailua business on Friday.

Police said the suspect was seen breaking into a car Friday at the Longs Kailua parking lot. A 54-year-old witness stopped him from fleeing by blocking the suspect’s path with his van.

The witness told police the suspect then got out his car and allegedly punched him through the open driver's side window. The witness then got out his car and was again allegedly attacked by the suspect, who fled, leaving his car because it was still blocked by the van.

Police located the suspect at his home Monday and arrested him on suspicion of unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle, criminal property damage, assault and contempt of court.
