Honolulu police are investigating a traffic accident that apparently escalated into a robbery Friday.
Police said two 29-year-old men got into a minor traffic accident in Kaneohe at about 8:30 a.m.
But the incident escalated when one of the men allegedly took the other man’s property using physical force.
Police were called and officers arrested a Kaneohe man at 10:30 a.m. near the intersection of Ahuimanu Road and Ahuimanu Place on suspicion of second-degree robbery and contempt warrants.
Police released the man Friday afternoon, pending further investigation.
