HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Police are asking for the public's help to find the suspects involved in three separate robberies of the same store owned by an elderly couple.

The first occurred on Friday, May 13 at 9 a.m. Two masked men entered the Y-7 Grocery and Liquor store on Gulick Avenue. They threatened the 74-year-old male owner with weapons, demanded money, and then ran away.

The following Monday, May 16, a customer entered the same store around 6 p.m. and found the female owner, 76, bleeding on the ground.

Police investigators reviewed the store's surveillance video and saw three men robbing the store. One of the men is seen clearly in the video using a submission hold on the woman. She appears to eventually pass out and falls backward onto the floor. 

Meanwhile, the video shows another man taking money from the cash register while a third acts as a lookout.

The victim remains hospitalized with injuries to her head.

The following day, May 17, police confirmed that the store was robbed a third time. A suspect got away with a bag of chips and other food items.

One of the suspects from Friday's robbery turned himself in on Tuesday night and was arrested at about 7:15 p.m.

Police confirmed that a suspect in Monday's violent robbery also turned himself in to the main HPD station around 11 p.m. Tuesday. The suspect may have gang-related ties to others involved in Friday's robbery, authorities said. 

Anyone with information that can help police find the suspects is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300. You can also text *CRIME on your mobile device.
