CrimeStoppers and Honolulu police are looking for three male suspects from a brazen November robbery of a delivery truck with Apple products at Ala Moana Center.

On Nov. 11, police said the delivery driver was unloading merchandise to the Apple Store when he was confronted by two male suspects.

The first suspect brandished a handgun, threatened the driver and took the keys to the truck. Police said a second suspect got into the driver’s seat of the truck with the first suspect in the passenger seat, according to a CrimeStoppers news release.

The delivery driver grabbed and pulled the first suspect out of the truck in an attempt to detain him until police arrived. Police said the second suspect fled in the truck with the Apple merchandise.

As the delivery driver held the suspect and waited for police to arrive, a third male suspect pulled up in another vehicle, brandished a handgun, and forced the driver to release the first suspect.

No injuries were reported.

Police did not report information on what time the robbery took place or how many items were stolen. A company spokeswoman said they have been notified of the robbery and declined further comment.

The first suspect is described as in his 20s, 5-foot-8 with a heavy-set build, dark hair and was wearing a dark striped shirt, dark-colored shorts and slippers.

The second suspect is a man in his 30s, 5-foot-8 with a medium build. He was wearing a white T-shirt, light-colored baseball cap and light-colored shorts.

No description of the third suspect was released.

Sgt. Kim Buffett of CrimeStoppers said the delivery van has not been located.

Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or send anonymous tips to www.honolulucrimestoppers.org.
