HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police have arrested a McCully teen in connection with the robbery and stabbing of a Japanese tourist two weeks ago.
Officers booked Kesly Lewis, 18, of Waiola Street on suspicion of two counts of first-degree robbery. He's being held at the Oahu Community Correctional Center.
A 23-year-old man visiting from Japan told investigators that the suspect approached him in the convertible he was riding in, pulled out a knife and demanded money. The tourist reportedly refused, and was stabbed during the ensuing scuffle.
Police say it happened at an Aloha gas station in Palolo at about 12:20 AM on Friday, July 8.
The victim was treated for his injuries and released. A second tourist in the car was not injured.
