Officers use Taser to subdue fleeing burglary suspect in Aiea

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

A 25-year-old man was subdued with a Taser yesterday morning after allegedly leading police officers on a foot chase that resulted in an officer hurting himself in Aiea.

Police said that at 3:18 a.m., officers received a call from an alarm company about a burglary at Mobile Car Audio, 98-265 Kamehameha Highway. The alarm company also reported a man dressed in black was seen on the property.

When officers arrived, one man fled, but another man remained inside the chain-link fence surrounding the business, police said. Officers surrounded the premises, but when they entered, the suspect climbed to the roof and fled by jumping to another roof, police said.

He led the officers on a chase over fences and between houses, according to police. At the rear of one residence, an officer spotted the suspect and climbed a fence, but fell off, hurting his arm and thigh, police said.

Two other officers caught up with the suspect, who allegedly challenged the officers to a fight. One officer used a Taser on the man, who was then taken to Pali Momi Medical Center, treated and released.

After his release from the hospital, the man was arrested on suspicion of two counts of unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle, second-degree burglary, criminal trespassing and resisting arrest.

The officer who fell off the fence was treated and released from the Queen’s Medical Center, police said.

The other suspect has not been located.
