Police investigate armed robberies on Oahu

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Honolulu Police Department is investigating a recent string of armed robberies at stores across Oahu.

Police were dispatched to two attempted robberies at Chevron gas stations. Two women, ages 45 and 33, reported a man flashing a weapon to employees inside a gas station store in Waipahu at around 11:42 p.m. After not being able to enter, the suspect fled the scene.

Less than an hour later, a 26-year-old man reported seeing a man showing a weapon at the Chevron gas station store in Salt Lake, according to HPD.

At approximately 1:43 a.m. on Sunday, witnesses at the McDonald's in Waikele reported seeing a man going through the restaurant window, stealing about $100 and fleeing. He is described as being about 5'8", slim built and wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

Police said although the suspect descriptions match for each incident, it's not certain it is the same suspect.

Honolulu police are also searching for the suspect of an armed robbery at the Jack in the Box in Kunia at around 2:20 a.m. on Saturday. A man -- who was apparently wearing a ski mask -- showed a gun to restaurant employees, demanded money and fled with about $500 in cash.

Anyone with information about these incidents are asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300, or *CRIME on your cellular phone.
