HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Crimestoppers and the Honolulu Police Department are looking for a man who is wanted for two attempted kidnapping cases.

On December 25, 2011, at approximately 12 p.m., a juvenile female was walking in front of the Makiki Cemetery when she noticed a man on a moped following her.

The male got off the moped and followed her on foot and grabbed her. He held her against the cemetery wall. The victim was able to get away after kicking him.

On April 3, 2012, at approximately 7 a.m., a juvenile female was walking on Citron Street, when she was approached by a man on a moped.  The male got off his moped and followed her behind a building where he pushed her down and attempted to make her ingest a pill.  The female screamed and spit out the pill.  A neighbor yelled at the male who fled on his moped.

The victims coincidentally happened to be friends.  Without knowing that the first incident occurred, the second victim told the first victim what happened to her. The first victim then stated that the same thing happened to her in December but was too frightened to report it.  Both incidents were reported on April 3, 2012.
