Aiea man charged with two counts of robbery

An 18-year-old man was charged this weekend with robbing two businesses within a few hours in Ewa Beach and Aiea.

Nicholas Yonemura, of Aiea, was charged Saturday night with two counts of first-degree robbery and kidnapping. His bail was set at $200,000.

Police said Yonemura entered an Ewa Beach store at about 10:45 p.m. Thursday, brandished a dangerous instrument, and demanded money and cigarettes before fleeing.

At about 1:15 a.m. Friday, he entered an Aiea business where he brandished a weapon and demanded property, police said.

He fled, but was located a short while later on Kaonohi Street and arrested as a suspect in both robberies.
