Hawaii island police seeking suspect who used stolen credit card

VOLCANO, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Big Island police are asking for the public's help in identifying the person who used a credit card that was stolen in a home invasion robbery in Volcano last week.

The person who used the stolen credit card was captured on a surveillance camera.

On Thursday, police say that two or three males in their teens or early twenties forced their way into a home in the Volcano Golf Course subdivision. They overpowered the 77-year-old resident of the home and demanded money. They then allegedly beat and bound the man, and removed cash, a credit card and other personal belongings from the home.

The victim was treated at the scene for his injuries.

The suspects wore masks, but were described as being possibly Caucasian. One suspect was further described as being approximately six feet tall and 200 pounds with a slim build.

Police urge anyone who recognizes the person in the photo or who has any other information about this case to call the Hawaii Police Department's non-emergency line at 935-3311. Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona.

All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential.
