Man, 65, arrested in Windward Oahu burglary

Police arrested a 65-year-old man on suspicion of burglary after a tenant observed him allegedly rummaging through a homeowner’s drawers at a residence in Windward Oahu.

Shortly after 5:05 p.m Thursday, police said the suspect, who rents a room inside a home, told another tenant, a 56-year-old woman who rents a separate room in the same house, that he was locked out of his room.

He asked for her help to find the spare room key.

Police said she allowed him to check the home office but became suspicious when the suspect already started to search through the homeowner’s personal drawers and cabinets.

The woman locked the office and returned to her room. Police said the suspect became angry, broke down her door and threatened her.

She ran out of her room to get help.

Police arrested the 65-year-old man on suspicion of first-degree burglary. He was released pending further investigation.
