Honolulu police are looking for two male suspects who bound an 85-year-old man in a brazen home invasion robbery in the Nuuanu-Punchbowl area Tuesday, police said.
The masked suspects clad in dark-colored clothing entered the residence on Pacific Heights Road by force at about 8 a.m., brandished a handgun and demanded the victim’s property, according to police.
The victim was in his home having breakfast when he heard a loud noise at the time of the robbery. The suspects apparently kicked a door to gain entry, breaking the door frame, the victim said in an interview today with the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
The suspects then bound the victim to a chair using plastic material — similar to plastic produce bags — and searched the home
The suspects fled the residence with money and other items taken from the residence.
The victim managed to break free and immediately called 911.
No injuries were reported.
Police have opened a first-degree robbery investigation in the home invasion.
The victim described both suspects as approximately 5 feet, 10 inches tall with a thin build.
Anyone with information is urged to call 911.
