Bicyclists targeted, attacked in violent Kaimuki robbery

KAIMUKI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Police are searching for several suspects after a violent robbery in Kaimuki over the weekend.

Police sources say at least two men targeted a group of bicyclists Saturday just before noon near 11th and Pahoa Avenues.

The suspects allegedly drove up next to the cyclists in a black Nissan Altima, got out and tried to snatch a woman's handbag from her shoulder.

Sources say one of the suspects then grabbed a gun, and hit the woman several times over the head before fleeing the scene.

The suspects got away with the woman's purse.

Witnesses describe one of the suspects as a local male between 20 to 30 years old, 5' 6" to 5' 8" tall, and 160 to 180 lbs. He also has tattoos on his left arm.
