Woman is robbed by armed client

A woman working at an Ala Moana spa allegedly was robbed by a client early yesterday morning after she declined to provide additional "treatments" for cash, police said.

The suspect, described as a man in his 20s, paid an undisclosed amount of money for a treatment, then wanted other treatments performed on him, police said.

The 38-year-old spa worker told the man at about 3:15 a.m. yesterday that additional treatments were not available, police said.
