Exclusive: Police hope repeat robber's routine could generate leads

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

He's shown pacing the street behind the Kapahulu Chevron for 15 minutes Thursday morning. Wearing a white hoodie and a fisherman's hat, he looks around the whole time, possibly for police.

People walk right by him, including a woman who works at a nearby business. She is also shown in the surveillance video from a surf shop across the street. But the woman told me, he didn't stand out so she didn't notice anything about his face.

At 11:17 a.m. The man, now covering his face, robs the store. It's the fifth time that business has been hit. The owner says the man did talk to the clerk, saying he'll pay the money back.

Altogether, the man is suspected in three dozen robberies this year, many in the Waikiki area.

Last month, he did the same thing at the Longs in Kaimuki. As he paced the area, a witness was able to see him without the disguise and helped with a composite sketch. But police need more people to come forward, and are hoping someone else walking by in those 15 minutes got a look at his face or a getaway car.
