A 31-year-old man is being investigated for the Wednesday robbery of the American Savings Bank branch in the Keeaumoku Walmart hours after he was released by police for a robbery in Ewa Beach.

Police said the man was arrested at 11:15 a.m. on Wednesday at the Queen’s Medical Center for allegedly robbing a 36-year-old woman at 10:43 a.m. on Tuesday at an Ewa Beach business establishment.

Police said a suspect passed a note to the woman. Police declined to say what kind of business it was.

The man has not been charged in either case.
