HALAWA (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Police are searching for two suspects accused of trying to rob a fast food restaurant in Halawa with machetes early Saturday morning.

Sources say the men entered the McDonald's at Stadium Mall shortly before 6 a.m. wearing white masks and hooded jackets.

The workers secured themselves in a walk-in freezer while the suspects unsuccessfully tried to open the register.

The incident comes nearly a month after two masked suspects robbed the Commercial Driver Licensing Center near Aloha Stadium. Those suspects were also armed with machetes.

Its unclear at this time if the same duo was involved in both incidents.
