Police seek Kokua Market burglar

Police are looking for a man who burglarized a Moiliili market by entering through the skylight early Friday morning.

Police would like help in identifying the suspect, who was seen on video surveillance at the Kokua Market at 2462 S. King St. at 12:30 a.m. Friday climbing through the skylight.

Police said the man set off the alarm and fled through the fire exit.

He is described as being between 20 and 30 years old and wearing a red and black baseball cap, a dark hooded sweater, gray shorts, an orange backpack and shoes.

Anyone with information about this burglary is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME on a cell phone.


Man arrested on suspicion of abuse

Police arrested a 42-year-old Honolulu man Tuesday afternoon who allegedly abused his 41-year-old wife and was found to have illegal ammunition in the home.

Police said the couple had gotten into a fight and the woman received minor injuries at about 4:15 p.m. Tuesday.

The man fled their home, police said. Meanwhile, the woman reported the alleged abuse and turned over firearms registered to her husband to police.

Police discovered among the firearms a prohibited-capacity ammunition magazine.

The husband surrendered to police, who arrested him on suspicion of misdemeanor abuse of a family member and possession of prohibited detachable ammunition magazine.


Cause of infant’s death is deferred

The Medical Examiner’s Office has deferred the cause of death in the case of a 5-month-old male infant, Lawrence L. Dennis of Makiki, who died Tuesday.

Further testing might take another six to eight weeks before a cause is determined.

A care provider discovered the unconscious baby at 2:55 a.m. Tuesday in his crib, and 911 was immediately called, police said.

He was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where efforts to resuscitate him failed, police said.
