2 arrested in kidnapping, burglary
Police arrested two men in connection with a kidnapping, burglary and terroristic threatening case Monday in Palolo.
Two men forced their way into the home of a 22-year-old Palolo man Monday at 11:09 a.m., police said. The intruders searched his belongings and demanded a post office box key as the older of the two held the victim against a wall by his throat, police said.
The men threatened the victim with an ice pick, forced him into a car and drove him to the post office. Police said the older man escorted him to a counter, where the victim signed for an insured package. The assailants drove away with the package, leaving the victim at the post office.
A witness observed the kidnapping and called police with the license plate of the suspects’ car. Two men, age 56 and 27, were arrested at 1:25 p.m. Monday.
