Duo arrested after high-speed chase, standoff in Wahiawa

Police have arrested two suspects after they barricaded themselves in a home at the Helemano Military Reservation in Wahiawa.

Police said the barricade ended after the suspects, a 35-year-old man and 27-year-old woman, surrendered to law enforcement at about 12:45 a.m. today.

Police said the suspects and the officers were involved in a high-speed chase Thursday after they were spotted in a stolen vehicle. During the pursuit, the stolen vehicle struck one of the police vehicles as the suspects attempted to evade officers.

The suspects abandoned the vehicle at about 5 p.m. and fled on foot into the Helemano Military Reservation, according to the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii.

The suspects entered a home occupied by a pregnant woman, her husband and their 2-year-old daughter. The family was able to safely escape the residence.

Officers of the Honolulu Police Department’s Specialized Services Division, as well as military police, evacuated the area after the suspects barricaded themselves in the residence.

The suspects surrendered to law enforcement several hours later.

Police arrested the 35-year-old man on suspicion of auto theft, criminal property damage in the first degree and unauthorized entry of a dwelling in the second degree.

Police also arrested a 27-year-old woman on suspicion of unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle in the second degree and unauthorized entry of a dwelling in the second degree.
