Police arrested two men in connection with an armed robbery that occurred May 29 at a convenience store in Makaha.
Kekoa K. Kaluhiokalani, 20, and Bennett Villanueva Jr., 22, were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of first-degree robbery. Both men already had been charged along with two other men for a separate convenience store robbery that occurred at Mililani Mauka on June 1.
An Oahu grand jury indicted Kaluhiokalani, Villanueva, Ioane L. Kaluhiokalani II and Tyson Rohr Wednesday for the Mililani Mauka robbery that occurred at a convenience store on Ukuwai Street. Police said the four men entered the establishment and demanded money while one of them brandished a rifle at an employee.
They fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. Police arrested them shortly afterward in the Mililani Mauka area.
The armed robbery in Makaha occurred four days earlier at a convenience store at the 8500 block of Farrington Highway.
Police said Kekoa Kaluhiokalani and Villanueva allegedly entered the store and demanded money from the cash register while Villanueva allegedly brandished a handgun. Store employees gave them an undisclosed amount of cash before they fled.
