A 27-year-old Kalihi man whom police believe tried to rob a man at gunpoint and drove away through a crowded Chinatown pedestrian mall Saturday will make his initial appearance Thursday in Honolulu District Court after being released on $75,000 bail.

Ifo Nimoai Jr., 27, was charged with second-degree robbery, firearms violations and promoting a detrimental drug.

Police said Nimoai robbed a 27-year-old man at gunpoint and then drove away recklessly through the Sun Yat Sen Mall  beside Nuuanu Stream about 10:30 a.m. Saturday, nearly hitting pedestrians. Signs posted on the mall say no vehicle traffic is allowed, police said.

Nimoai was seen carrying a handgun, police said.

Officers found Nimoai in his vehicle on a public street near the mall and arrested him at 10:51 a.m.
