    COURTESY CRIMESTOPPERS

    Razi Ali White was wanted on a warrant of arrest for criminal property damage and theft, but was later identified as a suspect in the beating death of a Fort Street Mall security guard.

A 30-year-old man who is in police custody on suspicion of criminal property damage and theft has also been arrested in connection with the beating death of a security guard at Fort Street Mall earlier this month.

Razi Ali White was arrested in the Iwilei area around noon on Friday on an $11,000 warrant for second-degree property damage and fourth-degree theft charges.

CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department on Saturday confirmed White is also the suspect in a second-degree murder investigation involving the death of a 58-year-old security guard at Fort Street Mall.

The security guard, who was hit in the head with a metal water bottle on May 3, was transported to a hospital in critical condition. Police reported that he died Thursday.

A 32-year-old suspect was initially arrested in what was a second-degree attempted murder case, but he was misidentified and released on Thursday.

White was positively identified as the suspect in the Fort Street Mall incident and arrested while in custody for his other alleged offenses.

His bail has been set at $500,000.
