HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department are asking the public's assistance to locate two men wanted for the attempted robbery of the Zales at Waikele Premium Outlets.

At about 8:40 p.m. April 9, two masked men armed with a hammer and a shotgun, entered Zales and attempted to remove jewelry from the glass displays. The males fled after failing to break the cases.

The suspects are both described as in their 20s. One suspect was about 5 feet 8 inches tall, wearing a black long-sleeved shirt, white pants and white tennis shoes. The second suspect wore a long-sleeved gray shirt, dark pants and black tennis shoes with a white stripe.
