KALIHI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The search for a bank robber created quite a scene for school kids Friday.

At about 11:00 Friday, the police department's SWAT team swarmed the area right in front of Kalihi Uka Elementary School.

They were there along with state sheriffs and a police helicopter flying above.

They shut down parts of Kalihi Street to look for the robbery suspect after receiving a tip that he was hiding at a home in Kalihi.

Police wouldn't say which bank had been hit up.

The suspect is still on the run.
