Police have charged a man in two bank robberies that occurred last week after arresting him yesterday for a separate case.

Douglas W. Skaggs, 44, of Kaimuki, was arrested outside his home yesterday morning in the robbery of a man on Tuesday night.

A man, 32, said Skaggs asked him to pick him up and take him to a house in Tantalus so they could hang out at the swimming pool of a friend, police said. Instead, police said, the suspect stopped the car on Round Top Drive, threatened the victim with a handgun, then sped off with the victim’s car and other property.

Police went to arrest Skaggs after he was identified by the victim in a photo lineup.

After the suspect was in custody, he was identified as a suspect in robberies that took place in Kahala on July 28 and Manoa on July 30. Witnesses from the bank robberies had also identified him in photos.

Police subsequently charged Skaggs with two counts of second-degree robbery in connection with bank robberies.

Skaggs was also charged with one count of first-degree robbery, unauthorized control of a vehicle, and several drug counts. He was being held on $90,000 bail. 

When the suspect was arrested, he had what appeared to be cocaine and drug paraphernalia on him.
