The suspect fled in the woman’s Kia Sportage. Police said the woman was not injured.
The female suspect spotted inside the vehicle in Mililani on Monday was arrested on suspicion of driving without a license, third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug and unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle.
Police arrested the male suspect inside the vehicle on suspicion of second-degree unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle, third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug, resisting arrest and a warrant.
