Two robberies occurred at a bank in Mililani and a jewelry store in downtown Honolulu within a three-hour period Friday, Honolulu police said.
The first alleged robbery occurred at the American Savings Bank’s Mililani branch located at the Mililani Shopping Center on Kipapa Drive just before 12:30 p.m.
Police said a male suspect entered the bank and demanded money. He then fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money taken from the establishment.
The suspect was described as 5 feet, 10 inches with a heavy build. He was wearing a gray hoodie and black face mask at the time.
Approximately three hours later, a robbery occurred at a jewelry store in the 200 block of Merchant Street in downtown Honolulu.
Police said a male suspect brandished a firearm, took several Hawaiian bracelets from the store and fled the scene.
The bandit was described as having a stocky build and wearing a gray and black hoodie, bucket hat, blue jeans and a mask at the time of the robbery.
It’s not immediately known whether the two cases are related. Police said there are no arrests as of this morning.
