A Halawa man who allegedly was casing vehicles in an Ala Moana area parking lot got into a lot more trouble after he almost ran over two people while trying to flee from police Friday afternoon.
Police said the man, 20, was confronted by another man, 42, in the parking lot about 1 p.m. The younger man reversed the vehicle he was in toward the other man, nearly hitting him, police said.
The suspect fled the area but returned a short time later, and then made a wide turn, nearly hitting a woman, 36, as she was calling police to report the incident, police said.
As he was being arrested, police found an air gun, police said.
The suspect was arrested and is being held pending charges of two counts of first-degree terroristic threatening and one count of prohibited use of an air gun.
