MAKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu police officers are searching for a man accused of robbing a family at gunpoint in Makiki.
The victims: three women and a newborn.
The family said they are too distraught to do an interview on camera because the gunman is still on the loose. However, a 29-year-old woman tells me she was at home with her husband, mother, sister, and 5-week old daughter Monday night when her husband left the house to go outside. That's when she said a man they didn't know barged into their front door. She says he was wearing a black hooded jacket, a bandana covered his face, and he had a long gun, either a shotgun or a rifle. The woman says he pointed the gun at them and demanded money. That's when she said her husband came back inside the home and the gunman got away with a backpack.
A police source says the front door was unlocked at the time and the suspect got into a four-door black car and fled.
No one was injured. The woman says the gunman also left a backpack at the scene which had ammunition in it. She says police now have that as evidence.
Chico Cash lives a couple houses down and says it's very concerning.
"I just seen like 14 police squad cars over here and I was wondering what's going on…that's scary," he said.
We're told police have opened a first-degree robbery case. The only description they have of the suspect is he is about 5'6 tall and 140 pounds.
