Suspect is wanted in Kunia robbery

Police are looking for a suspect in a Kunia bank robbery at 9:38 a.m. yesterday.

Police said the robber could be the person who robbed the same Bank of Hawaii branch on Kupuohi Street on Sept. 12 as well as the American Savings Bank branch on North King Street on May 26.

Police said that a man approached a teller at the Kunia bank, showed a handgun and demanded money. He fled in an unknown direction.

He is described as in his 40s, between 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall, and weighing 180 to 200 pounds. He had a mustache and was wearing a black jacket, black cap and sunglasses.

Man dies several months after attack

A 47-year-old man who was pushed over a bench in Waipahu in August died Thursday from his injuries, police said.

The victim argued with a 58-year-old man at 6:35 p.m. Aug. 4, and the suspect, fearing he was going to be in a fight, pushed the victim over a bench, police said. The 47-year-old man was seriously injured and taken to a hospital, where he died yesterday at 3 p.m., police said.

The city Medical Examiner’s Office said the manner of death was a homicide.

Kaimuki 7-Eleven robber is sought

CrimeStoppers and Honolulu police are seeking the public’s help in finding a man who robbed a 7-Eleven in Kaimuki.

The robber entered the store across from Chaminade University at 3105 Waialae Ave. at about 3:10 p.m. Wednesday. He took out a handgun and demanded money. A second cashier attempted to intervene and was struck by the robber, who fled in a white van, police said.

The man is age 50 to 60, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 250 pounds. He wore a dark T-shirt with a "Kauai" design, a dark-colored hat with a shaka sign, eyeglasses and shorts.

NEIGHBOR ISLAND

Police still seek robber

Big Island police are renewing a request for the public’s help in identifying a man who robbed a service station Sept. 25 in Hilo.

The man entered the 76 gas station at Ainako Avenue and Kaumana Drive at about 7:45 p.m. He demanded money, carried a large knife and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, possibly in a white pickup, police said.

Detective Wendall Carter said police need new leads to close the case. "We’re almost certain that someone out there knows who this is," he said.

Police ask that anyone who might know the identity of the person in the surveillance photo call Carter at 961-2378 or Big Island police at 935-3311.

Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous can call CrimeStoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona.
