Kapolei man charged after Ewa Beach McDonald’s robbed

A 39-year-old man has been charged for robbing McDonald’s restaurant in Ewa Beach.

Scheyenn K. Melendez of Kapolei appeared at district court today after he was charged Tuesday for first-degree robbery. Judge Maura Okamoto confirmed his bail at $250,000 and set his preliminary hearing for Mar. 28.

At about 6 a.m. Tuesday at McDonald’s at 91-1051 Keaunui Drive, police said Melendez allegedly brandished a dangerous instrument and demanded money from a 24-year-old woman.

Police arrested Melendez at McDonald’s just before 6:40 a.m.

In June 2010, Melendez was charged for unauthorized entry into a dwelling and two firearms charges after he held a gun to his head during a 10-hour standoff in Kapolei.

Police said on June 5 of that year, Melendez forced his way into his ex-girlfriend’s Kapolei home. He held a gun to his head and refused to give up his firearm but allowed his ex-girlfriend to leave the house after a SWAT team surrounded the home.

Approximately 30 area residents were evacuated from the neighborhood during the standoff. Police said Melendez later surrendered.

He has a criminal record of unauthorized entry into a dwelling, ownership/possession prohibited of a firearm, robbery, terroristic threatening, auto theft, harassment and burglary.
